Since Tampa Pride last met, the GLBTA community in Tampa has come a long way. Adoption bans have been overturned, marriage equality is becoming the law of the land, and Hillsborough County has joined Tampa in extending protections under a human rights ordinance. All of those things are great, but the struggle to be considered equal citizens continues.
We will have events all through the rest of the winter into spring when Tampa Pride will culminate on Saturday March 28th. We will have a parade, festival, auto show, family fun area, food trucks, a beer garden, and celebrate all that is being GLBTA or an ally in the Tampa area! We've chosen the gem of our area, Ybor City, to be the home to our parade and festival. The GLBTA history of Tampa couldn't be told without Ybor CIty. We'll also have events throughout the city including bar fund raisers, restaurant tastings and a host of GLBTA-related activities.
