Pride by the Beach in Oceanside
After a two-year hiatus, “Pride by the Beach” is back on June 11, 2022, from 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. This annual event that traditionally attracts up to 10,000 visitors is celebrating its 14th year in Oceanside, in-person, at Civic Central Plaza in downtown Oceanside, hosted by The North County Resource Center.
It’s the largest free, family-friendly, alcohol-and tobacco-free event of its kind in the region, with a 2022 theme of “Together” to acknowledge the excitement and the need to gather in support and celebration of the LGBTQ+ community.
There will be two stages featuring a collection of local speakers, music and entertainment. There also will be several resources available for LGBTQ+ individuals and a youth zone specializing in offering mental health services, recovery/harm reduction resources, HIV/AIDS testing and a youth and leadership development program.
Attendees can also connect with members of the North County LGBTQ+ Resource Center’s Unicorn Homes program, a project that finds and trains local host homes to support youth at risk of homelessness.
