Messages from our Friends
Pride Frisco is about lifting up and sharing voices from all walks of life from our LGBTQIA+ community, friends, and family members who choose us -- just as we are, without condition and with total affirmation! At Pride Frisco, you BELONG. We love you. We celebrate YOU!
– Pride Frisco Festival 2023 Organizers
LGBTQIA+ people need fierce advocates who are unafraid to journey shoulder-to-shoulder with us every day, motivated by a deep and abiding love for our community. Each of our keynote speakers is a mom-warrior who is changing the world so that LGBTQIA+ communities everywhere can thrive. I am thrilled for parents of LGBTQIA+ youth in Frisco and the Dallas-Fort Worth area to hear their stories and know that they are not alone.

Pride is about truth, joy, and community, and I can’t wait to experience it all at the Pride Frisco Festival this year! It’s a huge honor to be a keynote speaker, and in my work supporting transgender kids and their families, I know how important it is to be loud for those who can’t speak out and to be visible for those who have to stay hidden, especially in Texas. Pride is a celebration, but it’s also a reminder to allies to be active in the fight for LGBTQ+ equality and to push back against hatred, discrimination, and violence. Joy is an act of resistance, and I can’t wait to meet all the joyful parents of queer kids at Pride Frisco!
Founder, Real Mama Bears
I'm so excited and honored to be a part of Pride Frisco this year. As a proud mom of a gay son, Pride events are especially meaningful to me. In addition to being a time to wholeheartedly celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, Pride is also an opportunity for me to reflect on the hardships LGBTQ+ people have endured over the years, remember all they have overcome and achieved, and recognize and recommit to the work that still needs to be done so all LGBTQ+ people can live as their true self without hesitation or fear.
Founder, Free Mom Hugs
My hope is that my story and presence would give parents reason to search the LGBTQ matter out, because when we do, we find our LGBTQ family and friends are a gift to this world worth celebrating. And to my fellow allies, let us be found strong and faithful. Pride means we don't have to hide anymore. Shine Bright.
Thank you to our SPONSORS whose generous financial and in-kind contributions make possible PRIDE FRISCO FESTIVAL 2023!
