In a year of firsts, the City of Gulfport is debuting a day-long Pride event throughout Beach Boulevard, and key local locations on Saturday, May 29.
“We’re so excited and so is everyone else,” said Suzie King, owner of SIK Promotions, co-organizer of Gulfport Pride.
Money raised from the event will benefit the LGBTQ Resource Center of the Gulfport Public Library.
The event in Gulfport, happening before St. Pete’s month-long celebrations in June, is a co-effort by SIK Promotions, LocalShops1 and the City of Gulfport.
