PFLAG Santa Clarita and Queer SCV will be celebrating Pride Month this year by hosting a community Picnic in the Park. We invite all community members to join us on Saturday, June 22, from 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Dr. Richard Rioux Park in Stevenson Ranch for an afternoon of family fun.
This year’s event will include family-focused events such as carnival games, corn hole, horseshoes, and water balloon tosses. Watermelon, lemonade, bottled water and snacks will be provided by our PRIDE committee so all you need to do is pack up the picnic basket and blankets and join us at noon!
Hipified Records, a COC student led and managed music production company, which promotes student artists and their original creations, will supply live entertainment throughout the afternoon.
PFLAG SCV is the extended family of the LGBTQ+ population in the Santa Clarita Valley community. Made up of parents, family members, allies and our LGBTQ loved ones, we were established in Santa Clarita in 1988 to assist those struggling with the coming-out process at a time when there was much apprehension, misunderstanding, and antipathy toward the gay community. Though many gains have been made, we continue to serve our community with monthly meetings as the youth suicide rate among LGBTQ+ teens is escalating rather than dropping. Our work is not yet over.
Formed in the fall of 2018, SCV Queer was launched with the purpose of building community and reducing social isolation for our LGBTQ+ residents who are 18 and over. This is accomplished through hosting a variety of inclusive, intersectional social events like game nights, crafting afternoons, hiking, attending comedy shows, and more. Queer SCV plans at least one social activity each month and has participated in several local events.
We are excited to be hosting PRIDE ’19 for the Santa Clarita community and we thank our corporate sponsor, Boston Scientific, for their generous donations and support.
For further information about PRIDE ‘19 please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or www.QueerSCV.com.
