The Roots of Kentucky Black Pride
Kentucky Black Pride is not just an annual event; it's a movement. Established in December 2016 by Shawn Ka'Ron Bumpase, this nonprofit organization has been making strides to elevate the lives of QTPOC individuals in various areas of central Kentucky. Our mission focuses on Lexington and its surrounding counties but also extends to other cities such as Frankfort, Louisville, and Covington.
Our annual festival is more than just a one-day event; it's a declaration of unity and self-awareness. Held every third weekend of September in Lexington, the festival offers a range of activities for all attendees. Expect live music to groove to, a variety of food options to suit all taste buds and vendors who support the cause and community.
- Live Music: From local talents to renowned artists, our music line-up has something for everyone.
- Food Stalls: Satisfy your hunger with diverse food options that celebrate various cultures.
- Community Vendors: Purchase merchandise or learn about local services that align with the values of unity and pride.
Be part of a celebration that aims to unite and elevate the QTPOC community in Kentucky. Your presence can make a difference!
