“We are excited and honored to have Alderman Ramirez-Rosa be a part of the sixth annual United Latin@ Pride Week, which started as a simple idea in 2010 and has grown every year to become more and more an integral part of the community,” says Erika Pacheco, newly joined ULP board co-chair. “As a member of the LGBTQQIA Latin@ community, it is empowering to not only see our community represented in city government but also to know there are individuals in our city government acting as our voice and letting our presence be felt.”
In addition to Alderman Ramirez-Rosa’s keynote, United Latin@ Pride Week’s Carnival Latin@ kick off celebration will feature performances curated by local burlesque artist Miss Mister Junior.
Now in its sixth year, United Latin@ Pride’s week of LGBTQQIA Latin@ pride celebrates and amplifies the work of community members, groups, agencies, and businesses through a week-long program of free events.
United Latin@ Pride Week 2015 will run from June 4th through June 11.
