Carnaval 2012 – fue un exito!

Gracias to our Sponsors, Volunteers, Partners and Community! Portland Latino Gay Pride Carnaval 2012 was a success. Standing room only events, record Festival participation, amazing local and national performers, we had something for everyone.

Some of this year’s highlights include awarding our first PLGP Scholarship, recognizing our Mariposa Award recipients, establishing new partnerships and sponsors, and seeing our COMMUNITY…juntos and celebrating Latino Gay Pride!

Here’s what a few people had to say about this year’s Carnaval (Festival):

“The space was awesome, the live music was fantastic, and the vibe was the best! This was my first Latino Pride, and I felt like family. Thank you for the opportunity volunteer and to meet such wonderful people in my community.”

“What a beautiful day with equally beautiful people. Such pride in our Latino Culture. Thank you to everyone that made today such a wonderful experience.”
