The Underground 1865 presents TAKE BACK PRIDE

June 27 at 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Pride is so much more than a block party and a rainbow tshirt, so join us in spreading awareness in the Hampton Roads community!
If you are interested in helping with this event, learning more about it, or being a voice during the rally (specifically black/POC queers and trans people), please message me! We’re looking for more volunteers. People who would like to speak, sing, dance, or perform of any kind to showcase what pride is really about, is welcome!

There will be a memorial set up to honour the black trans/queer lives lost so please feel free to bring candles, flowers, artwork, etc. to add to it.

Please be aware that COVID-19 is still very much present so wear a mask and practice social distancing as much as possible. We will have hand sanitizer available to those that need it.

(NOTE: If you are a white cis person, please be mindful of your surroundings here, you are an ally and your purpose is to amplify black voices. Thank you for understanding!) The Stonewall Riots served as a catalyst for the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world. Come join us as you We Take Back Pride. Feel free to share.
