Family Pride

Main & Washington Streets, Columbia

For the 1st time at the South Carolina Pride Festival, join us for a day of Family Fun & Pride in our kid-friendly space hosted by the Harriet Hancock LGBT Center.

We know that many LGBT people have families and many of our straight allies have kids too. This year we wanted to offer activities that would appeal to the entire family. We have a lot of exciting things planned for the Family Pride space. You won’t want to miss it and your kids will LOVE IT!!!
