As Eagle County Pride works to offer year-round programming, the group’s leaders are hoping that the local businesses taking down rainbow flags from inside their shops will extend their support for the LGBTQ community beyond the month of June.
With Pride month come and gone, there have never been more opportunities for local businesses to keep the momentum going, said Eagle County Pride committee member Madison Partridge.
As Eagle County Pride expands, the group is planning events for community connection year-round and is working with Eagle Valley Behavioral Health to launch an LGBTQ support group, Partridge said. The group will also offer support in the creation of Gender-Sexuality Alliance (GSA) clubs at local schools.
“From here, it can only get bigger and better … so we’re really excited,” Partridge said.
