Morehead Pride’s inaugural LGBTQ* Pride Festival will be held on East First Street in Morehead, KY at noon, Saturday, August 27, 2016.

The Moonlight Stage on East First Street will feature live music from The Woodsheep, the TransKentucky Orchestra and Debora Greathouse. Guest speakers include Aaron Jackson from Planting Peace, Chris Hartman from the Fairness Campaign and couples that were involved in the fight for marriage equality nationwide. Section 93 of the historic Sea to Sea rainbow flag will be on display as well. The flag has traveled to recent historic events held at the White House and in Australia and New Orleans as a symbol of equality and justice. The flag was present on the steps of the Supreme Court for last year’s historic marriage equality ruling and it was recently displayed during President Obama’s visit to the Orlando victim’s memorial. The festival will also feature food, vendors and fun activities for the whole family.

“Our community gained international media attention last year and it opened up an important conversation about equality. We plan to have a celebration that shows support and visibility for the LGBTQ* community in our region,” said David Moore, Morehead Pride Executive Director.
