Join the Historic Selma Black  Pride Planning Committee 

Pride is a movement to celebrate all the trans and queer people of color who have paved the way for our generation to be visible and to celebrate their identity in the face of our administration which would rather shame us than recognize us as human beings. In the heart of the Bible Belt, Historic Selma, Alabama we recognized that LGBT rights are the second leg of the civil rights movement. Black Sheep's are born to stand out. We are the change we want to see in our community and the support our future queer community needs to see. 

 

TKO relies on volunteers to produce a successful festival. Pride depends on the community’s participation to happen and we could use your help. Won’t you be a part of history? Volunteer to help us make Historic Selma Black Pride 2020 an event to remember!  Below, you will find those positions, descriptions, expectations and other information listed.


Please note: If you are under the age of 18 during the Pride weekend, there is a different process for your registration. For more information email Pride Director jennine@tkosociety.com
