In summer of 2017, when a few friends were sitting around wondering why Gettysburg didn't have a Gay Pride Event yet, they decided to organize a bar crawl...in less than two weeks of course. They thought maybe a dozen people would show up. On June 22, 2017, over 80 people filled the bar at Gettysburg Hotel's One Lincoln. Pride flags, glow in the dark necklaces, and LOTS of smiles with friends old and new filled each bar as we walked around historic Lincoln Square with PRIDE. Bars welcomed us and some staff members even wore Pride shirts just for us that night. It was wonderful to see so many of our LGBT+ and straight allies come together for what is now known as the annual Gettysburg Pride.
This year, we will have a full weekend of events of all kinds including: bar crawl, education/outreach and free rapid HIV testing and counseling, restaurant, winery, shopping tours, cabaret and more May 31-June 3, 2018. Many businesses in town will be sponsoring Gettysburg Pride so be sure to look for the Pride flags and visit them to say thanks for their support!
Be sure to find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and post photos of Pride! #gettysburgpride
Be safe and have a great time! Welcome to the family!
