This year’s Theme for Pride will have “Alphabet” Soup Cans with the letters L-G-B-T-Q-I-A on them and our Logo “OUT OF MANY, ONE” which is the meaning of the Latin phrase “E PLURIBUS UNUM”. E Pluribus Unum refers to the fact that the United States was formed as a cohesive single nation as a result the thirteen smaller colonies joining together. Our community identifies with many letters of the alphabet but with all of us coming together to form a cohesive single community.
