Dakota OutRight hosts annual pride celebration

BISMARCK, N.D. - Dakota OutRight hosted its annual pride celebration at the Capital in Bismarck this afternoon.

The event, held on the capitol lawn, included food, t-shirts and local musicians. Volunteers say they wanted to create a safe space for the LGBTQ community in North Dakota.

Dakota OutRight unveiled a youth program, at the United Church of Christ, for high school students to anonymously discuss with others about their sexual orientation.

"You know, it's such an amazing thing to be a part of this, to see us all come together and unite and remember that love is always the answer," said Suzie Bartosh, Dakota OutRight Board Member.

More than 50 vendors and 200 people attended the event. For more information, go to dakotaoutright.org
