June kicks off the beginning of Pride Month, a celebration of LGBTQ people, as well as a stand against discrimination.
Last weekend, thousands in Boise came out for the city's 30th annual Pride celebration.
This Saturday, the two year-old Pocatello LGBTQ group Priddaho will take its first shot at putting on a pride event. The groups says they're expecting 2,000 to 3,000 people to come out, and that all are welcome at the family-oriented event.
It will go from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at O.K. Ward Park, and will include food and other vendors, bouncy houses, drag performances, dunk tanks and more.
The president of Priddaho, Travis Kerbs, says it's about creating a safe space, and celebrating how far LGBTQ people have come as a community.
"Pride has meant to me a foundation,” says Kerbs. “Stabilization in my life, goal sets, fundamentals of family."
Next year, Kerbs says Priddaho hopes to add a parade to their pride celebration.
