POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Portland shows its pride - June 16, 2014


Portland has had a month full of pride!

 

Nick was proud to support the LGBTQ community this weekend by walking in the Portland Pride Parade with fellow City employees.  Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Portland Pride Festival & Parade honors our community’s diversity and supports equality.

 

Last week, City Council proclaimed June 2014 to be Portland Pride Month.  The proclamation highlights the economic, artistic, political, and social contributions the LGBTQ community provides Portland.  We were also pleased to celebrate Bureau of Environmental Services employee Debbie Caselton, who earned Pride Northwest’s 2014 Spirit of Pride award for her tireless advocacy on behalf of the LGBTQ community.

 

Portland is committed to diversity and social justice. Join us in celebrating Pride this month with Pride Northwest, Black Pride, and Latino Gay Pride.
