The first ever Reston Pride was held on June 2, 2018 at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Reston. Close to 1,200 people joined us to celebrate our vibrant and important LGBTQ community! 

Reston Pride exceeded all of our expectations. We were thrilled with the diverse entertainers, activities and exhibitors; click here to view the Reston Pride program.  Mama Celeste served as event MC and was a fabulously fun and welcoming presence. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Mama Celeste is one of the up-and-coming drag performance artists in the Bay Area - we believe it!

Reston Pride was a community effort, with Cosponsors and Corporate Supporters that provided financial and planning support. We also had over 60 volunteers on the day of Reston Pride. These volunteers helped tremendously and kept the day running smoothly. We are very grateful for the outstanding community support for this historic event!
