Tacoma’s LGBTQA community has organized twelve days of events with the intent to produce and provide opportunities to learn and celebrate all groups regardless of sexual orientation, religion, disability, gender expression, color, and social/economic levels. The Rainbow Center in Tacoma, in collaboration with multiple community partners, has put together a variety of activities during these upcoming days including Pride block parties, performances, LGBTQA movie viewings, discussions on equality and faith, book readings, and more.
