BoroPride planning committee first meeting, June 28, 2016.
Brendon Holloway, originator of BoroPride, displaying the 2016 BoroPride committee shirt, August 27, 2016 (a sample of the shirt is on display).
Set-up can get a little out of control, September 9, 2017.
Gorgeous day at the entrance to BoroPride, September 7, 2022.
Crowds have always been part of the event, even after the move to Cannonsburgh, September 9, 2017 and August 21, 2021.
Everyone loves BoroPride, even "Homo Sex is Sin" never misses a year! August 27, 2016 and September 7, 2019.
Music has long been part of the event. One of the bands warming up and Ryan Cassata headlining August 27, 2016.
The drag show has long been a crowd favorite, from the first BoroPride, August 27, 2016, through the third BoroPride, September 8, 2018, and up to the most recent BoroPride, September 7, 2022.
When BoroPride moved to Cannonsburgh Village we were able to partner with a local Brew Crew to offer cups for sale (cups that could be filled with beer for free). You can see some arm bands and one of the cups from 2022.
A special pass is necessary so people at BoroPride know their Queen when they see her, September 7, 2022.
BoroPride shirts are always popular. The price has actually gone down since 2017.
On display you can see:
- The shirt from 2016
- The committee shirt from 2016
- The committee shirt from 2017 (this design became the shirt for 2018)
- The volunteer shirt from 2019
- The committee shirt from 2021
- The shirt from 2022
These bags were made to advertise the first MTSU TDoR and were created and posted to Facebook on October 27, 2016.
The event has had good luck with the weather all but once. The 2020 set up was a particularly nice day.
An overview gives a sense of the scale of the event and the magnitude of the loss the display represents.
The event is mostly an opportunity for quiet reflection. Some of the people represented have biographies so participants can learn more about their lives.
On display are supplies needed to put on the event and some of the bags representing lives lost to anti-transgender violence.
