    Dear Friends,

     

    Howard County Pride values the safety of all our community members. We have been closely monitoring the COVID - 19 pandemic as well as adhering to the Center for Disease Control guidelines and Governor Hogan’s directives.

     

    Upon careful consideration, Howard County Pride is postponing HoCo Pride 2020 in order to continue taking protective measures against the spread of the virus. We are excited to celebrate pride in Howard County in other ways until it is safe to determine a future date for HoCo Pride 2020.

     

    Howard County Pride will continue to bring many online interactive activities in the meantime! To start, we are planning for virtual drag queen story time, poetry slams, and a talent show. Be on the lookout for fun videos and online fundraisers, so we can stay home and still be connected. If you have ideas or resources to share to engage the gender and sexual minorities, please email info@hocopride.org. Also, visit our Facebook page and HowardCountyPride.org for more information.

     

    Thank you for your understanding. We wish you all the best during these times and look forward to our pride celebration later this year.
