Pride 2024

After an overwhelmingly successful 2023 Pride slate of events attended by more than 1300 individuals, Eastern New Mexico Rising is again planning an official Pride celebration for rural New Mexico! This year's Pride events will take place in Clovis and Portales throughout the month of June and will provide an opportunity for LGBTQI+ individuals in Eastern New Mexico and West Texas to be themselves, to meet new friends, to be out and proud and to be surrounded by a safe and loving progressive community. 

Being queer, accepted and welcomed in rural Eastern New Mexico is an uphill battle we are fighting head on. Eastern New Mexico Rising is committed to fostering and building a safe, welcoming and progressive community for ALL !
