The economy is effecting everything, including this year's Fresno Pride Parade & Festival. Not only are donations and support down, but new, unexpected expenses are facing Community Link and it's efforts at hosting Fresno's biggest LGBT event.

If you have not already joined Community Link's efforts by helping out financially, renting a booth space, sponsoring a parade entry or purchasing an ad in the program, we urge you to do so right now. Deadlines are on top of us as Pride is ONLY 10 DAYS AWAY.

Gay Central Valley increased our donation to the Pride Parade this year by more than 200%. Please do what you can to help out Fresno Pride...


From Fresno Pride's website...


We were just informed by the Fresno Police Department that we will be charged an additional $1,600 for their services during the Parade. Topped with the county's requirement that we rent a $400 three-compartment sink for our food booths, it means that we're at least $2,000 short in our budget because of the unforeseen expenses.

If you can help us cover this gap, or make a donation towards it, contact us TODAY! Ask for Jeff - (559) 486-3464.
