Dayton Ohio Pride 2024

With LGBTQ+ pride month quickly approaching you may wonder what you can do to celebrate. The Clarion is here to give a list of local things and to spread some light on what Sinclair is doing. Pride month is a time to be around like-minded people and to express yourself freely. Pride has a long history dating back to the 1969 Stonewall riots.

Lex Rakovan, the LBTQ support liaison, told The Clarion that, “Myself and Brite Signal Alliance will be having a presence at some of the local prides this season! Brite Signal Alliance is hosting a table at the Dayton Pride on June 1, 2024 from noon to 4 p.m. as well as walking in the parade that starts at 11 a.m.. I’ll also be having a table at the first ever Kettering Pride on June 14 from 4-8 p.m. at Delco Park. Anyone’s welcome to come walk with us or hang out at our tables!”

No one should be afraid to go out and have a little fun expressing themselves in an open-minded community. Everyone is welcome to whatever festival they choose to go to and it is encouraged to bring a friend. Check around for local dates and times for your own cities to see what they are holding.
