Secretly Ya'll presents: Pride & Prejudice

Secretly Y'all is excited to collaborate with Diversity Richmond in presenting PRIDE & PREJUDICE.

Normally "Pride & Prejudice" brings to mind Victorian romances and oppressed women with sharp wits. However, at this Pride & Prejudice event there will be no Jane Austen allowed. Each September Virginia celebrates its local Pride Month, and this year we want to hear from Richmond's vast, diverse LGBTQ+ community about their experiences as queer people in the formal capital of the Confederacy. How do we overcome the prejudice others spout or that we ourselves internalized and take pride in who we are and who we love?

The event will be held in the Rainbow Ballroom, the main event hall at Diversity Richmond. Stories start at 7:30pm. Stay tuned for more details.

If you would like to submit a story please email us a brief synopsis of the story and a short bio at secretlyall@gmail.com.

Love on Tap

An anniversary is the celebration of an ongoing story. Today, we celebrate the stories of all LGBTQ+ Americans who resiliently marched through inequality and found common ground on the foundations of love and equity.

Four years ago, the Supreme Court recognized equal marriage rights for all, and with that momentum we continue the journey into a world where identity is not a point of contention but of inclusion. The anniversary of marriage equality in America is our opportunity to honor the past, rejoice in the present and continue to write love into our future.

Taproom is open from 12-6PM with Love on Tap officially kicking off at 1PM.
