Working to Live in Southwest Washington

What Is Vancouver USA Pride - And Why Does It Happen In July?

July 1, 2022


June is coming to an end - but that doesn't mean we're done honoring and celebrating members of the LGBTQ+ community here in Southwest Washington! Vancouver USA Pride ( keeps the party going on July 9th at Esther Short Park in Downtown Vancouver.

Shannon and Harold sit down with three members of Vancouver USA Pride's Board - Brian Beliel, Jennifer Lanier and Dustina Haase-Lanier - to find out why Pride is so important for working people (no matter what their sexual orientation or gender identity might be,) why Vancouver's event is so much later than other Pride celebrations, and what working families can expect when they attend this year's event.

The Southwest Washington Central Labor Council and several of its affiliated unions are proud to sponsor this year's Vancouver USA Pride, and you or your organization can sponsor the event too -!

Vancouver USA Pride is also looking for volunteers to make the day go smoothly - sign up to volunteer at
