3rd Health and Pride Fair

We hope to see you at our 3nd Annual Queer, Trans, and Intersex PGM (People of the Global Majority) - Health and Pride Fair happening on Saturday June 29th, 2024 in City Heights. This year's theme is "Fighting for Our Futures" and it is a response to the hate and fear our community continues to experience on a daily basis. Click here to RSVP.

2nd Queer, Trans, and Intersex Pride Fair took place in June 2023

Civic Engagement's 2nd Annual Queer, Trans, and Intersex Pride Fair was an amazing time with community members and organizations held on June 3rd! This year's theme is "Protect Queer Youth" and is a response to the hate and fear our community continues to experience. 

“Together we will create hope, joy and community while learning, playing and making new connections,” said Shanti Huynh (they/them/their), Mid-City CAN’s Civic Engagement Coordinator and organizer of the fair.

San Diego Pride, San Diego Black LGBTQ Coalition, Planned Parenthood, Imperial Beach Community Clinic, Lambda Archives, Trans Health & Wellness Center, Dylan Friedkin, and the YMCA's Teen Programs, Our Safe Place, Housing Support including LGBTQIA+ Youth were present. Disco Riot was also in attendance to promote Queer Mvmnt Fest, a queer-focused movement-arts festival, that will be presented in San Diego from June 12-18.

Drag Storytelling

Local youth teens entertained the crowd with a drag show and drag story time. There was also a Queeral (mural), speakers, art activities for all ages, an affirmation station, and community passport game. It was a great kickoff to Pride Month!
