Though the LGBT community in Sonoma County is a diverse group, they are joined in solidarity to promote equality and elevate the lives of their members. This week, the dedicated volunteers behind Sonoma County Pride
celebrate their achievements and community with a three-day extravaganza that includes art, music and more along the Russian River. An outwatch film festival opens the merriment at the Rio Theater on Thursday, June 2, before the 29th annual event, themed “United in Pride,” boasts an art walk, country-and-western dancing on Friday and disco dancing on Saturday, and the annual Pride Parade and festival on Sunday. Sonoma County Pride shares the joy June 3-5 throughout downtown Guerneville. sonomacountypride.org.
