The Newport Pride Ride was an incredible event that united the community to celebrate love, diversity, and unity. Despite the uncertain weather forecast, we had a great turnout and are thankful for all those who joined us for The Newport Pride Ride!
Celebrating Pride with Newport Pride and Newport Out
The Newport Pride Ride was made possible through the collaboration between Newport Pride/Newport Out and Bike Newport, two organizations dedicated to promoting LGBTQ+ rights and creating an inclusive community. Their unwavering support and commitment played a vital role in bringing this event to life. We extend our heartfelt thanks to these partners for their invaluable contributions.
We believe that the Newport Pride Ride not only celebrates love and diversity but it also serves as a powerful reminder that unity and acceptance can overcome any obstacle. Together, we pedal towards a brighter and more inclusive future, where everyone can ride freely, express their true selves, and be embraced with open arms.–Sean O’Connor, Co-Founder of Newport Pride
