MIDLAND, TX –– After having a large turnout at last year's events, Basin Pride is gearing up for the 2022 festivities.
“In so many different areas we had multiple events that were well attended and the community seemed to be very supportive and so that’s why we have some of the things that we did from last year," said Pride Center West Texas Secretary Kelsy Waggaman. "We’re drawing on those resources as well as the input from new volunteers and what we’ve learned from the past."
Last week volunteers for Basin Pride met at Tall City Brewery in Midland to discuss potential dates and events for the festival.
“I hope that Pride provides that space for new people to the area, like myself, or just sharing the message that everyone is welcomed and that everybody matters and is valued here,” said volunteer Kelsy Waggaman.
Basin Pride is also searching for corporate sponsorships to be part of this year's event. Sponsorship opportunities range from $500 to $8,000.
