Not everyone knows that Modesto has a pride, but those who did enjoyed as whole day to celebrate who they are without the judgement of others. On September 22nd, 2018, people from all over the city came together at John Thurman Field and enjoyed music, meet new people, discovered services offered throughout the county, danced to an ‘80s rock band, and even a performance by some Drag Queens. It was a joyous event that some students of Modesto High School had the chance to attend.

Thavie Keary (19) say, “I thought MoPride was pretty fun and I enjoyed it a lot. It was cool to see everyone celebrating who they are and who they loved without worries. Lotta fun dancing times”.

The event offered a sanctuary for the LGBTQ community to express themselves without the need to worry about society, as illustrated by Thavie. People expressed themselves freely in the presence of people who accept them. It was amazing and inspiring for the community to come together to support a cause greater than them.
