Out & Proud Grays Harbor was born out of an event that happened in June of 2013. There was a gathering of individuals who came to support equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) people living in Grays Harbor.
The event drew a lot of attention as we stood in unity on the corner of Simpson Ave and 7th Street in downtown Hoquiam for three plus hours.
It was humbling the amount of support we received from people driving by. We had such an amazing response that we decided that it was time to start our own Grays Harbor PRIDE.
So we are launching our initiative and will be working on events, gatherings and outreach to the LGBTQ community.
