Pride Week was held recently, and The Runner’s Katie Goree and Ayres Harrison, were there to catch up with California State University, Bakersfield current students, alumni, and community members. Pride Party was held Tuesday evening at the Student Union lawn.

There were games for all to play, food to eat, and a celebration to be had as the LBGTQ+ community came out strong to uplift one another and provide a safe space to be visible. At the Pride Party drag queens performed a pride filled set, that gave a prelude to the performances to come later in the week at Bakersfield Pride.
