June 11, 2014: The Project will offer an exhibit celebrating St. Louis' first official Pride (April 1980) during this year's PrideFest set for June 28-29 in downtown St. Louis. The exhibit will feature rare photographic images taken by Jim Pfaff, Jim Andris, Judy Napier, and Wilbur Wegener. Other artifacts will include a 1980 Pride t-shirt, along with original paperwork and marketing materials. Several members of the 1980 Pride Committee will be featured in this year's Pride Parade. This is the third year the Project will have an exhibit at PrideFest. The Project's exhibit will be located in a tent directly across from Solider's Memorial in the grassy park area. The Project continues to seek volunteers to help staff the exhibit, as well as donations to help cover exhibit expenses. For more information please contact us.
