For the past three years, the Human Rights Commission (HRC) has hosted Rockville Pride, an annual festival that celebrates Rockville’s LGBTQ+ community. This free celebration features live intergenerational performances, educational booths, dialogue, crafts, face painting, airbrush tattooing, food trucks, a moon bounce, and more. As part of the festival, the HRC raises funds for its local LGBTQ+ charity of choice. This past year, the HRC donated $1,000 to Rainbow Youth Alliance, an organization dedicated to providing a safe place for rainbow teens to ask questions, find mutual support, and learn information pertinent to their lives. This year, the HRC plans to donate funds to Maryland Coalition for Transgender Equality.
Volunteers will be responsible for assisting with setting up tables, chairs, and decorations; greeting, escorting, and checking in guests; distributing materials; assisting performers; helping with crafts; preparing social media posts; stage assistance; cleaning up. Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) student volunteers will be eligible to receive SSL hours. For more information, please contact Staff Liaison Janet Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 240-314-8316.
The City of Rockville wishes to thank all our sponsors for their support. A full list of sponsors will be available at the event.
