Together we Rise SCP 2021
Join us this year for the 2021 Star City Pride Festival, Together we Rise June 18th & 19th at Matt Lot (8th & S Street). This in-person event will feature the very first annual Pride Parade, and a Festival bigger than ever before!
At the time of the festival, those with access can stream the live event at starcitypride.org/live.
As Pride Month winds down, we want to thank all of our attendees, sponsors, vendors, performers, volunteers, paid staff, and anyone else we may have missed! We are so grateful for the community support, as well as the outpouring of support from so many friends and allies in our little city of Lincoln. Check out this promo video of things to come at our new media page! Coming soon! Special thanks to @KualdomCreations for creating the video!
While Pride is a celebration of the progress made, it’s also a reminder of the work still left to do. On this, the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, we would like to share a couple of short interviews with a few of our gay rights icons and leaders: Sylvia Rivera, Marsha P Johnson, Wendell Sayers, and Randy Wicker. Links to the podcasts and audio transcriptions are below. Representation matters, and so does our history. Happy Pride! Sylvia Rivera – https://makinggayhistory.com/podcast/episode-1-1/ and https://makinggayhistory.com/podcast/sylvia-rivera-part-2/ Marsha P...
