2nd Annual Tioga County Pride Day
June 24, 2023 at 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Tioga County Indivisible is proud to announce the second annual Tioga County Pride Day! Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 24th. A variety of activities will be taking place from 12-9PM in the Coolidge Theater of the Deane Center at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. This year’s theme is “A Celebration of Unity and Peace!” Our intention is to celebrate the local LGBTQIA+ community, show unity with allies, and do it all in a peaceful, joyful manner.
This year’s event will include a variety of community partners and vendors at tables from 12-5PM. If you or your organization would like to participate, please contact Nichole at email@example.com. Tioga County Indivisible’s table will have flyers explaining the LGBTQ acronym letters, preferred pronouns, information on how to be a good ally, how to start a GSA, and a list of online resources for support. We will also have some small items and t-shirts for sale to raise money for next year’s event. There will be a photo booth for selfies and lots of giveaways from the different tables.
At 2PM, Vanessa Le Diva will present a “Drag Story Hour”. This will consist of stories, music and singing. Vanessa is a well-known drag queen and storyteller extraordinaire from the Corning area who celebrates inclusivity, diversity, love, and acceptance. There will be a break in the festivities from 5-6:30 PM. We encourage attendees to grab dinner from one of the many great restaurants on Main Street, take the kids home, and then return for the evening’s festivities.
While the afternoon activities are free, there is a charge of $5.00 per person for the evening entertainment, which starts with a Poetry Slam at 6:30. This fabulous event will wrap up with a drag show from 7-9PM. Local queens and kings will perform.
