Happy Pride Month, everyone!

Since the Akron Pride Festival organization postponed their events until next year, they’re producing some really great videos on Facebook, along with other special content and virtual events all summer long.

Here are some examples, but make sure you’re following them on Facebook and Instagram so you don’t miss anything.

Also, have you seen the photos series that Portraits of a Pandemic and CANAPI teamed up on? Check out “Portraits of Pride” on Instagram by following @portraits_of_a_pandemic and @canapi_akron. Here’s a sneak peek…

Even though we can’t celebrate Pride in person this month (I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and wearing face masks around town), we can still support the LGBTQIA+ community in Akron year-round.
