Kitsap Pride event is this Sunday
The Kitsap Pride Network invites the community to Evergreen Park this Sunday, July 20, for a day of food and family friendly entertainment from noon to 5 p.m.
This year’s theme, Reflections of Pride, honors the inherent dualism of the 1960s, which sparked the fiery Stonewall uprising amidst the peaceful revolution held by the “flower power” generation.
“We’ve come a long way as a society,” said Michael Goodnow, who chairs this year’s event. “This past decade, we’ve experienced great strides forward in regards to the equal rights movement. It’s important to take a moment and reflect back on the struggles of those who came before us. It was their bravery, 45 years ago that got us to where we are today.”
Goodnow also shared a few highlights to this year’s event including performances by local artists the Dirty Beat Duo, and the first openly gay country music singer, Patrick Haggerty.
Kitsap Pride is a non-profit event organized by volunteers throughout Kitsap County. For more information on Kitsap Pride, how you can participate, or event dates and times, visit Kitsappride.org.
