Our Letter To The Community: We need community and connection more than ever and this gives us an opportunity to both connect and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community’s resilience in the face of this pandemic and the true spirit of Pride. The coronavirus pandemic has prompted the cancellation or postponement of hundreds of Pride celebrations around the world. The unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 mean that most Pride celebrations will not take place or take place during the month of June as planned in 2021, but we’re determined that this won’t stop us from coming together as a united, strong LGBTQ+ community. Please join us, share us, invite your friends, your family, and everyone that needs to celebrate you! #YakimaPride 🏳️‍🌈
