joe says "prde mnth"

Joe's team loves how diverse Portland has become. Among the many tiles in the mosaic of Portland is our active LGBTQIA community. This week is a celebration of the strides they have made, both from a legal and social perspective. Pride Portland! is a celebration of Portland's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and allied community. The organization's goal is to bring people together to celebrate the achievements of the LGBTQA movement, remember its history, and raise awareness of the work that still needs to be done. Unfortunately this year's festivities have been postponed due to the pandemic, but you can find more about this organization, including a schedule of upcoming events, at its website. Joe's team hopes the festivities can resume soon, and applauds this community for their resilience and strength.
