Alaska Pride Fest Theme Revealed Next Week
The 2012 Alaska Pride Fest theme and logo will be incorporated into all of this year’s Alaska Pride Fest activities, held June 2 to 10 in Anchorage, and during the Pride Conference held in October.
“The importance of the Pride Fest theme is that it allows the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community an opportunity to celebrate the State’s diversity with the community, especially during this year’s Pride Fest festivities,” said Felix Rivera, co-chair of the Alaska Pride Fest committee.
Past themes have included Step Up, Step Out; 2010: A Pride Odyssey; The Last Queer Frontier; Out in Alaska; and Pride & Joy, to name a few.
