FM Pride Week
FM PRIDE unites and engages individuals and organizations to empower, educate and support the LGBTQ Community; and promotes a positive image in the Fargo-Moorhead area and throughout North Dakota through community activities and services that are open and inviting to everyone in the community, providing a safe environment in which individuals feel free to celebrate their relationships.
Each year’s Pride celebrations draw attendees from North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, and stretching into Canada, claiming its spot as one of the nation’s largest rural pride celebrations!
Fargo-Moorhead PRIDE is operated on 100% volunteer support. You can find more information here if you want to become more involved with the FM LGBT community.
