What does PRIDE mean to me7

Alaina Giesbrecht lives with her wife in Winston-Salem. She

has served on the Board of Pride Winston-Salem since

February 2019. "For me, the Pride parade and festival has

always been a time for family and fun. Pride is an opportunity

for everyone to express themselves in a safe space, to build

community and connection, and to honor the brave individuals

that have worked and continue to work tirelessly to bring

about a more just and compassionate world."

My name is Jared Hunter. I am 28 years old, and married the

love of my life almost three years ago. I graduated from

Appalachian State University with a degree in Political Science

in 2014 and currently work for the North Carolina Department of

Public Safety. I grew up in Clemmons, and moved into Winston

Salem after graduating college. I feel a strong connection with

the city and always look for ways to get involved where I can.

To me, Pride is about connections. A sense of belonging and

community. Serving as a Pride Winston-Salem Board member

gives me the opportunity to help in building that community

and to strengthen those connections. The ones between not

only this organization and our partners, but the connections we

build with each other.

Lovelee- Pride is the love and harmony that makes our

community great! With pride we are able to grow, develope and

encourage love, providing refuge and acceptance to all in need.
