Hello Alliance members and friends. Happy Pride Month and we want to thank Emergent Arts and Erin Holliday for securing the city permit and organizing the Pride Walk this year, for always supporting the LGBTQIA+ community and for always supporting the Hot Springs Pride Alliance. We encourage everyone to support Emergent Arts and Central Theatre for the Pride Celebration on Saturday June 10 starting at 4:00PM at Grateful Head Pizza (where the parade started last year) and ending at Central Theatre, 1008 Central Avenue. Be sure to check out Central Theatre’s website for all of the weekend’s activities.

For those of you who were not present at the last Alliance general membership meeting at Emergent Arts on April 2, there were conversations regarding the Alliance and our board which have given the board pause to re evaluate what the Alliance’s role looks like going forward. We have accepted Trevor Lewin’s resignation as president.

For these reasons we stepped back from our cosponsorship of the Pride Walk and will not be hosting the annual Picnic at Arc Isle this year. We are grateful and thrilled that Emergent Arts and Central Theatre have stepped forward to create Pride month walk and activities – so please go out and support and show your PRIDE!

We wish thank all our supporters, donors and those of you who have reassured us publicly and privately that we were doing good in and on the right track for the community.

Happy Pride Month and we hope we can all unite and celebrate our diversity!
