New name and logo carries forward 11 years of community celebration
With over a decade of successful events celebrating Latino LGBTQ pride, Portland Latino Gay Pride is changing its name to reflect the community’s rich diversity. The new name is PDX Latinx Pride!
Latinx is the gender-neutral alternative to Latino and Latina. Used by activists, scholars and an increasing number of journalists, Latinx is gaining popularity among the general public. The word moves beyond gender binaries and is inclusive of the intersecting identities of Latin American descendants. Latinx makes room for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, agender, non-binary, gender non-conforming or gender fluid.
PDX Latinx Pride! celebrates both the location of our diversity in the Portland region and the pride the Latinx community brings with our presence, visibility and power.
The new name comes with a new logo, which combines the bright orange color associated with joy and celebration, the symbol of a flower offered in friendship and the rainbow colors that traditionally symbolize the LGBTQ community.
