Working in Clark County: Saturday in the Park – Vancouver USA Pride
“We really love seeing the community come out on the day of the event,” Lanier said. “It’s worth it when young and old come to tell us that this is their first Pride event after coming out. We know we’re not as big as the Portland Pride Celebration, but we’re excited to be accessible to LGBTQ+ families and allies in Clark County.
The Vancouver Pride team is optimistic that Saturday in the Park can continue to be a beacon of positivity within Clark County’s queer community. The team hopes this will inspire future generations to get involved in local LGBTQ+ activism to provide the Vancouver area with an even greater variety of Pride events in the future.
Lanier, Haase-Lanier and their fellow Vancouver USA Pride board members are excited to welcome the community to Saturday in the Park later this summer. All are welcome as they look forward to seeing past participants and newcomers.
“We’re a local Pride event that has something for the whole family,” Lanier said. “Bring your outdoor chairs and picnic blankets, pick up something at the nearby farmer’s market, and prepare for an afternoon of fun and connection!”
