Bigger, better, and gayer than EVER. Wine Country Pride is back and honey, she’s got a whole new look!

Throughout the world, the month of June is celebrated as Pride month. We are thrilled to announce that WCP is returning and growing in 2022. We are a young organization with big goals and big dreams. This year, we are expanding our programming and initiatives with the aim to positively impact as many people in our community as possible. Pride will always be a place to come together and to feel welcome and safe.

 

OUR MISSION

COMMUNITY  IMPACT

 Wine Country Pride has been creating spaces for the LGBTQ+ community and allies to be heard and welcomed. Over 400 people have watched and participated in our main event each of the last two years — both in person and through our virtual live stream. Through our first inaugural Rainbow Quest, 28 local businesses sold 2800 items. Since our founding, WCP has raised over $30,000 to provide scholarships to LGBTQ+ youth and support local organizations that advocate for the LGBTQ+ community.
