2017 Stories of Pride with OUTCOAST

On October 24th OUTCOAST hosted its 2017 Stories of Pride kickoff event at the historic DTSP venue NOVA 535,  in beautiful downtown St. Petersburg. The event brought together LGBTQ organizations from around the region to celebrate those making a difference in the local community and to raise funds for the LGBTQ center in Puerto Rico. Nearly $1,000 was raised that evening.
