“On behalf of the VA Pride Board, I want to thank everyone who made this year’s PrideFest so successful. We greatly appreciate our sponsors, media partners, vendors, entertainers, and everyone who attended. It was wonderful to witness such a great, diverse turnout, and especially gratifying to see so many of our straight friends and allies, and all of the families with children.
