We are glad to invite you to participate in a historic event this spring. Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbian and Gays (PFLAG) of Mid-Shore Maryland is hosting the first ever LGBTQ Pride celebration on the Eastern Shore.
We are planning a variety of activities during the weekend of Friday, May 3 through Sunday, May 5, 2019 in several locations. They include evening First Friday celebrations in Easton and Chestertown; informational and fun gatherings at Idlewild Park in Easton on Saturday morning; a festival in Chestertown’s Fountain Park on Saturday afternoon; and — not one, but two! — fun and fabulous musical drag shows: the first at Washington College on Saturday evening and another at The 447 in Cambridge for Sunday brunch.
