Richmond held its first Pride Festival on June 29th, 2019. Severe storms on June 15th forced the event to reschedule. The event also marked the return of Rainbow Richmond, the local LGBTQ group that originally formed in 2006, but had been inactive the last several years. This page contains the interview of Benjamin Guard (transcript here), who pulled the Pride Festival together and who currently runs the Rainbow Richmond Facebook group. This page also contains screenshots from the Rainbow Richmond Facebook page, news articles, and a flier about the Pride event.
