Community Outreach

Panhandle Equality tries to participate in all major community events to create visibility and bring awareness of LGBTQ+ issues. We participate in the Oregon Trail Days Parade, National Night Out, the County Fair, and more.

We also plan at least one social event every quarter. All social events are open to the LGBTQ+ community and our allies. Events can range from more adult-focused (21+) to family-friendly (all ages) activities.
