Join North County LGBTQ Resource Center for a community celebration:  Celebrating the Diversity Within.  They want to show that everyone matters!  It’s time to celebrate everyone no matter who they are regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, etc. The event is Saturday, October 10 from 11:00 am-6:00 pm.

The event is free and offers a full day of fun:  big time entertainment, music, dancing, an Art Alley, educational presentations, kids’ garden, food, as well as other vendors!  The entertainment includes headliner, Mariachi ARCOIRIS de Los Angeles, Popsicle, Celeste & the Upbeats, and GayC/DC.

The location is downtown Oceanside by the beach on Pier View Street and City Hall. Parking is located in the parking garage on the corner of Ditmar and Civic Center.

Funds raised go toward North County LGBTQ Resource Center Project Youth. They coordinate the Pride Prom in the Spring, the Gay/Straight Alliance (GSA) Awards in the fall and the Youth Leadership Summit in the fall. The Center feels this is a great way to give back to the community. For more info:
