Portland Pride is around the corner, an important time to reflect on the anti-gay and anti-trans rhetoric happening across the country. Our response to this is love, which is why Know Your City has been honored to work with LGBTQ activists and historians to design the Pride Forever walking tour. Pride Forever examines the compelling stories of LGBTQ history in Portland, from pivotal spaces in which LGBTQ folks built community, to precious moments that galvanized the entire movement. Join the walk! Our first tour will be led by local comedian Belinda Carroll on June 18th, followed by LGBTQ historian Peter Boag on June 25th. See you there!
Join us to kick off our month of birthday celebrations on June 11th, starting with LIVE Portland: a concert and comedy show benefit for Know Your City with comedians Bri Pruitt, Jeremy Eli, and bands Little Star and Neon Culpa. Get your tickets here!
Join us on June 19th for a special 7th Anniversary Art for the Millions Pedalpalooza Bike Ride, led by former Dill Pickle Club and Know Your City Programs Coordinator, Pollyanne Birge!
