CALL TO ACTION
People’s Pride PGH: Black Trans Lives Matter Too will make our strong call to action to leaders in our city and state government to address the urgent needs of those most marginalized. It is imperative that we get movement on statewide nondiscrimination protections, including a ban on panic defenses, hate crimes legislation, TLGBQIA+ community education, homelessness and poverty programs, meaningful employment opportunities, ending the violence against TLBTQIA+ people – particularly Black and brown trans women – and address so many other vital issues. We must, and can, do this and more.
People’s Pride PGH will also highlight the need of our TLGBQIA+ communities to advocate for ourselves and ensure our voices are heard, to guarantee laws are enacted that protect us all! We can support the community work that needs to be done while working closely with city and state government to secure the basic civil rights of TLGBQIA+ people are realized our youth, adults, and seniors.
THE WEEKEND AGENDA
People’s Pride PGH will kick off this year on October 9 with “Self Care Day – Prohibition Style” with our community partners from Body Euphoria Inclusive Massage Therapy! We invite community members of all ages to this day of FREE healing workshops and tips on healthy living. Because you can’t take care of others and fight for others when you don’t take care of yourself!
People’s Pride PGH will culminate on Sunday, October 11, with our traditional Pride March through Downtown Pittsburgh onward to West Allegheny Commons Park on the Northside to enjoy the People’s Pride PGH Music Festival, as we now do every year. The festival will feature local organizations, performing artists, and a special TLGBQIA+ headlining musical guest.
