Yes, I am from New Bedford. Graduating class of 2003. However, I moved away after I graduated college and just moved back. So, I have been out of the loop on the Pride happenings in the area.

So here is my attempt to give you as many of the Pride events happening this Pride Month as possible. From the looks of it, we have a pretty full calendar. Here is what's on the SouthCoast LGBTQ Network website:

SouthCoast Pride Facebook Event Page: I'm excited for SouthCoast Pride at Buttonwood Park Zoo this Saturday. When I lived here previously (almost 12 years ago), we didn't have any kind of pride event in the New Bedford area. The closest one was either Providence or Boston.

Fall River Pride Festival At Government Center: Then we have the Fall River Pride Festival on Sunday. The facebook event page has all the important info but YAAAS.

AHA! PRIDE Block Party: Ok, who doesn't like a block party? I'm especially excited about this event happening in New Bedford. I'm a total art buff so this is right up my alley.

There are a ton more events across the SouthCoast; just take a peek at that calendar. If there is one you don't see, please send me an E-Mail

Hope to see you out and about this Pride Month.
