On June 1st, hundreds of folks of all ages came out to the Todos Santos Plaza to CELEBRATE family, community, diversity, & PRIDE.
The day was filled with love, laughter, & fun in the sun. With a live DJ & amazing performers there was always something exciting for the senses to enjoy. Special thanks to all of the amazing volunteers, staff, board, performers, exhibitors, vendors, donors & sponsors for making PRIDE 2019 a success.
On May 31, 2019, the Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County, The City of Concord, and local Politicians, at Concord City Hall raised the Rainbow flag to commemorate June being PRIDE month. Thank you to everyone who came out and joined in solidarity with the Rainbow and the City of Concord. Thank you to our city's Mayor Carlyn Obringer, and members of the Concord's staff and council.
This year, more cities in Contra Costa County than ever before will proclaim their support for their LGBTQ residents by raising the rainbow Pride flag. Designed in 1978 by San Francisco artist and gay rights activist Gilbert Baker, the flag is a dynamic, enduring, and now global symbol of LGBTQ pride and liberation. Read full press release>>
