While the topic of conversation remains around the very important historical biases in our systems, one movement (that also began as protests), Pride Month, has shifted its eventful calendar to a digital one in the wake of a global pandemic and concerns surrounding gatherings spreading the coronavirus.

Portland Pride is an annual event that promotes and celebrates all things queer, and raises the voices of LGBTQ+ Portlandians.
