Portland Black Pride is back! After a hiatus of sorts Portland Black Pride is back – and collaborating with the PFLAG Portland Black Chapter.

“We are planning a series of events to take place during the dates of 6/15-6/19.

Stating that a collaboration between Portland Black Pride and PFLAG Portland Black Chapter are “a perfect fit”, Edwards describes PFLAG Portland Black Chapter (PBC) asĀ  “promoting the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer persons, their families and friends through: support, to cope with an diverse society; education, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal human rights”, and Portland Black Pride’s mission as striving “to showcase and celebrate the cultural and social contributions of Black gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people in Portland and across the country”.
