PALMDALE – A free pride walk for members of the local LGBTQ+ community will be held this Saturday in Palmdale.
The third annual AV Pride Walk will kick off at 4:45 p.m. Saturday, June 24, near the Coffee Bean, located at 39605 10th Street West. From there, participants will march north on 10th Street West to Avenue O, east on Avenue O to La Quinta Lane, and then turn right onto La Quinta Lane and end at Transplants Brewing Company, where there will be an AV Pride Fest celebration.
“The Antelope Valley pride walk is open to all members of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies and is a family friendly event,” according to event founder Sky Jung, who also serves as chair woman of Palmdale’s Human Rights Advisory Committee.
“More so now than ever it is extremely important that the LGBTQ+ community and their allies join together in solidarity to promote unity, understanding and foster greater acceptance of the LGBTQ community and its culture within the fabric of the community and America,” Jung stated in an email.
The walk is being organized by the AV Pride Walk Committee. For more information on this event, visit: https://www.facebook.com/events/745381580264776
