Gay Pride in West Virginia

West Virginia Pride held its 14th annual LGBTQ Pride Parade/Festival in the capital city of Charleston on June 6. The crowd of several thousand people attending was multigenerational and multinational, with significant transgender representation.

A parade kicked off the event, featuring contingents from W.Va. Pride, the ACLU, Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), Mountain State Bears and the Covenant House. Following the parade, people enjoyed live music and entertainment from mostly transgender performers.
