Impact and Programs

Twin Cities Pride hosted focus groups with QPOC community members and used the information in planning 2015 events. Twin Cities Pride created space for over 500,000 Minnesotan's to come together to celebrate who they are and who they love. The Supreme Court announcement that ALL people are entitled to marriage on 6/25/15 was perfect timing for celebrations at Pride.
