Inspired Youth Paving the Way!
This will be the 2nd Annual Pride Festival organized by Eastern Sierra Pride, but local youth have been celebrating through grassroots events for years. In 2021, local youth organized a Pride march, starting at City Hall. The parade drew dozens of supporters and was a glimpse into the vibrant life our local LGBTQIA2SP+ community has in Bishop and the greater Eastern Sierra. Eastern Sierra Pride would like to acknowledge these folx for paving the way!
