June 22, 2019 was a great day for the city of Evansville as the community came together to celebrate love and diversity with the first ever River City Pride Festival and Parade. The parade and the day's colorful festivities were full of love and joy and it was truly beautiful as we celebrated our friends and family in the LGBTQ+ community. I had the pleasure of attending the event myself where I marched as an ally offering free mom hugs to those that needed it. I gave out so many hugs!!

While I will be wearing my "Free Mom Hugs" tank top to show my support for Pride month, the festivities themselves seem to be on hold for 2020, like most all other large public events, due to coronavirus. Luckily, Covid-19 can't keep us from celebrating and recognizing the beautiful rainbow of diversity and we have plenty of photos from last year's event thanks to our friends at Tymeallo who gave us permission to share some of their amazing photos from the day's events. Take a look! If you want to see more of their photos visit their Facebook Page Here.
