What Is Pride?

What does Pride mean to you?

Each year Pride celebrations happen all over the world.  In cities large and small people gather to publicly express their love, compassion, sexuality, and so much more.  Our OC Pride celebration is for the community, about the community, and put on by the community.  To serve the LGBTQ+ community of Orange County better we decided to ask them what Pride means to them and how we can make it better.

In March 2017 a small group of OC Pride volunteers put out an open call for anyone who wanted to let us know what Pride means to them.  We interviewed friends, strangers, colleagues, and anyone who would give their time.   These volunteer interviewees were not given the questions before hand to capture their most honest and genuine answers.  The result is As One.

The short documentary premiered at the 2017 Orange County “As One” Pride Parade and Festival.

We hope you enjoy.  Happy Pride!
