Gualo Rai, Saipan (June 23, 2021) – DOCOMO PACIFIC, regional leader in innovation, telecommunications, & entertainment, takes pride in supporting Pride Marianas Youth’s events celebrating Pride month.
June is Pride month! A global celebration where many collective voices unite to support and honor our LGBTQIA+ community. Leading the charge is the Pride Marianas Youth organization. Last week they held the “Pride at the Park” event which featured family-friendly activities and a specially curated exhibit housed by the museum which included stories of Pride from the Northern Marianas Humanities Council.
Their next exciting event is “Safe Spaces for All” scheduled for June 25, 2021. The event is a PRIDE themed wave, walk and watch event to raise awareness in the CNMI followed by a program by the Humanities Council. A 5k Drag Race is also planned to encourage physical fitness for youth and families to take part, dress up and support that love will always win in the Marianas.
DOCOMO PACIFIC is proud to assist the Pride Marianas Youth organization for the second year in a row. The contributed items will be given to the anticipated 100+ participants and volunteers, which included bags, reusable straws, and beach chairs.
"Happy Pride Month Marianas! Pride Marianas Youth and DOCOMO PACIFIC through the years continue to be amazing supporting partners for our island LGBTQIA+ community and most importantly our youth. Our community continues to embrace increased awareness and celebrations of diversity, empowerment of equality and respect, and braver safer, more inclusive environments for our pride youth to thrive. It is through these collaborations that a community unites to raise awareness of the resilience, struggles, celebrations, and the PRIDE that exists within our community. The DOCOMO PACIFIC family continues to support the amazing cause and partnership with Pride Marianas Youth's efforts to participate in this global celebration here on our islands.”
