Cenla Pride Weekend

Purchase your #CenlaPrideInPlace Shirt!

CLASS founded Cenla Pride in 2014 as a celebration of the rich diversity of our community. Cenla Pride has been successful beyond our wildest dreams, and is a testament to the love and care our community members have for one another. As Cenla Pride 2020 approaches, the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, is impacting global health, and disproportionately so those among the most marginalized in our community, much like HIV/AIDS did 35+ years ago, and actions we take today to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are vital to the long-term strategy of health and safety for our entire community.

With Cenla Pride 2020 a mere two and a half weeks away, we have made the decision to #CenlaPrideInPlace this year. Our theme for this year’s Pride event is “Love Isn’t Cancelled!” We believe in our community’s ability to address this challenge with integrity and compassion. We must combat COVID-19 with a calm and measured response that honors our most vulnerable while still celebrating the love and diversity that led to the first Cenla
