Portland Pride 2023! Where & How to Celebrate! 🏳️🌈
Happy Pride, Portland! 🏳️🌈
June is widely recognized as Pride Month, a time when the LGBTQ+ community and its allies come together to celebrate, honor, and advocate for equality and acceptance. In the vibrant city of Portland, Oregon, Pride Month holds a special significance, as the community comes alive with events and activities that promote inclusivity, education, and awareness. In this blog post, we will explore the importance of Pride Month, highlight some of the exciting events typically held in June, and discuss the significance of Portland's decision to shift the Pride festival to July this year.
Despite the date change on the festival, we're still dropping our highly-anticipated Pride collection at 12:01AM June 1st, 2023!
Pride Month holds immense significance as it commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City, which marked a pivotal moment in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights. It serves as a time to honor the struggles, achievements, and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community. Pride Month offers a platform for individuals to express their true selves, promoting visibility and fostering a sense of community and pride in one's identity. It also allows for a vital reflection on the ongoing challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community and the work that still needs to be done to achieve equality and acceptance worldwide.
The bustling nature of Portland during these seasons has restricted the flexibility of moving the Pride event's dates. The sheer availability of alternate dates for the Waterfront has been quite scarce. Furthermore, the venue search in Portland has also been a bit of a puzzle. With the Portland Pride Waterfront Festival and Parade being as massive and significant as they are, finding a space large enough and equipped with the right infrastructure has been a considerable task.
This year, we're excited to be offering a wide range of classic and custom items. From inspired headwear to comfy tees, there's something for everyone this June. We can't wait any longer, which is why we're dropping our collection the moment the clock strikes midnight on June 1st.
Don't miss out! And happy Pride, Portland!
