Glorious rainbows and enthusiastic smiles took over Civic Center Park in Downtown Denver this past weekend with Denver PrideFest. According to organizers, approximately 385,000 people attended the party over the weekend June 17-18, 2017. All walks of life joined in the event that celebrated love, life, and equality. One of the coolest moments was on Sunday when Dillon and Trent got married on a float. Right there at PrideFest in front of family and friends from across the country, and an emotional audience, the couple tied the knot right on top of a parade float.There was dancing, shopping, eating, and children playing. This is how life is supposed to be for all.
100% of the proceeds from the festival go to support programs that help the GLBT Community Center of Colorado. This is a “non-profit organization whose mission is to empower, engage, enrich and advance the LGBT community of Colorado.” Their mission is to “engage, empower, enrich, and advance the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community of Colorado.” Memories were made this weekend and attendees look forward to not only next year, but living every day with pride.
