This weekend, the third annual Northern Nevada Pride Festival took place in Wingfield Park, as part of Artown.
The event kicked off with a parade, and included performances from dance groups, drag queens and live musicians. This year’s headliners were comedienne and drag queen Lady Bunny, and singer Amber.
Penny Royal is a member of the Reno-based Bohemian Burlesque, and participated in the parade with other members of her group. She says she’s very excited that Pride is part of Artown.
“There’s a lot of LGBTQ folks in the performing arts community, and Artown is a performing arts and artistic event," she says, "So why wouldn’t those two things just naturally go together?”
The festival served as a fundraiser for Our Center, the new LGBTQ community space in Reno.
