JT Pride offers a theme and color to each year’s festival. The theme this year is ‘It’s Getting Better!,’ a take on the national campaign ‘It Gets Better Project’ that helps LGBT youth against bullying. Past year’s themes include ‘Love’, ‘In The Name of Equality’, ‘Love Makes a Family’, ‘Born This Way’, ‘Celebration of Progress’.
This year’s color is LAVENDER. Yes, Lavender!
What is Gay Pride? LGBT pride or gay pride is a message that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity. The movement has historically three main premises: that people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity, that diversity is a gift, and that sexual orientation and gender identity are inherent and cannot be intentionally altered.
JT PRIDE MISSION: Serving to bring community together through arts and music in recognition of National Gay Pride Month.

SOME SPOTLIGHT PERFORMANCES:
Jesika von Rabbit 8:30PM! She is on a new musical voyage with her solo project and is charting her course with a flood of fresh melodies that is a rising storm of edgy electro-pop rhythm’s and fiercely emotional lyrics. (JVR) is a pansexual experiment in synth driven blonde ambition. JVR’s crossover dance anthems will force you to question your sexuality and compel you to dance your ass off while thinking about it..
COMEDIAN JULIE GOLDMAN @ 7PM !
She combines music and comedy in a relentless and un-apologetic outrageous tour de force. Call it lesbian or feminist humor if you want, but the great thing about Goldman is that she shows us we’re all in this together….
The Shari Elf Fashion Risk Show @ 5:30PM! Be prepared to have her goodness forced on you. You have been warned
In the afternoon drop by THE STATION! An official sponsor of JT Pride and part of the neighborhood block party, featuring DJ VICTOR RODRIGUEZ
