June marks national pride month and to celebrate, Star City Pride is holding its first ever pride parade in Lincoln in support of the LGBTQA community.
Sponsorship director and parade chair Gretchen Arroyo said when she moved to Lincoln from Southern California, she couldn’t believe Lincoln did not have a Pride Parade.
"For me personally what it means is that we're able to come out, we're able to celebrate who we are without having to worry about what other people think. But do it in a way that is inclusive to everyone that is an LGBTQ supporter ," Arroyo said. "And then also just spread love and light and positivity."
The parade will be held this Saturday, June 19th at the Nebraska state capitol. The parade will be free to the public and will starts at 10 a.m. For more information on the parade, visit the Star City Pride website.
