Join Keene Pride and Nova Arts Center at 7pm for an evening of sharing and community to
acknowledge and honor the coming out stories of the LGBTQ+ community.
The event was founded in 1988 by psychologist, Richard Eichberg and gay rights activist, Jean O'Leary in order to raise
awareness for the queer community. October 11th was chosen to mark the anniversary of the second major National
March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, which took place 1987. It was nearly five times larger than the first
march which was held in 1979 and remains an important annual commemoration for the queer community.
To share stories about your life, your art, your relationships or anything you wish, truth or fiction, please sign up at

The mission of Keene Pride is to promote the visibility of LGBTQ+ people in the Monadnock Region and build a
coalition of services, organizations and businesses that embrace and serve the LGBTQ+ population. To contact
