RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Beckley Pride hosts its second annual Pride event in honor of June being Pride Month.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, it couldn’t be the festival the organization put on last year. Instead, organizers put together a virtual dance party complete with performers.
President of Beckley Pride Christina Baisden says she’s happy with the support the event had.
“They needed to know that someone is still there for them and that, you know, that Pride is still alive and well,” said Baisden. “Even though we couldn’t all be together, we were still all dancing at the same time.”
If you missed the virtual event but still want to get involved or celebrate Pride Month, Beckley Pride is looking for volunteers.
