Enid Pride 2013 is set for September 21st at Government Spring Park. Save the date!
ENID PRIDE 2012 WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
Pride committees are forming now. Come to a board meeting and get involved!
This event would not have been possible without the help of talented volunteers. If you would like to volunteer for Enid Pride 2013 let us know. We hope to fill the leadership roles in several Pride areas as soon as possible. Most important, is that we want to say thank you to everyone who helped to make Pride possible. In an effort to reach our large base of supporters, a very special letter can be found at this link to The Route 60 Sentinel. http://route60sentinel.com/2012/09/28/if-you-were-connected-to-enid-pride/
If you were unable to attend Enid Pride, but are interested in how the day went, you can read Mark Keefer’s article about Enid Pride. This is also a Route 60 Sentinel link. http://route60sentinel.com/2012/09/23/enid-pride-2012-a-better-world/

Enid Pride was nothing short of honored to have Michael Korenblit as this year’s key note speaker. Michael is co-author of UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, the true story of his parents, Manya and Meyer Korenblit, who are Holocaust survivors. He speaks throughout the United States about the lessons of the Holocaust and how it relates to issues of today. His riveting story about their experiences, and how his childhood brought those experiences full circle, was remarkable. Mike and his wife, Joan, are the founders of the Respect Diversity Foundation (RDF) www.respectdiversity.org , a non-profit, tax exempt organization. They teach respect and tolerance for all people no matter their differences, through diversity seminars and workshops.
Riley Janzen is one of Enid’s favorite musical talents, and he returned for his second year to play Enid Pride. Riley’s gifted guitar playing merges beautifully with his soulful voice and truly poetic knack for crafting a song. Again, Enid Pride was so very lucky that Riley Janzen shared his talents on the main stage. Drop by The Felt Bird ( 124 E. Broadway) and give him a special “thank you” in person.
Enid Pride was thrilled to have the one and only Eric Himan kick off the Enid Pride Festival as our opening musical act. Eric is an award-winning nationally touring soulful/folk/rock artist. Eric’s music has recently been featured on Sirius/XM’s Coffeehouse radio station with his song, “Save The Afternoon” and version of the Simply Red classic, “Holding Back the Years”. Eric Himan is a Fender Guitars endorsed artist (appearing in their Fender Catalogue), winner of multiple songwriting contests, and has been performing non-stop in and outside the US for the past several years. He was awarded Best of the Best in Oklahoma Magazine for 3 years, while nationally winning the Singer/Songwriter Awards and licensing his original songs to MTV, Vh1, Oxygen, and E. A very special thank you also goes out to Enid LGBT Coalition’s supporting partner for Enid Pride, Oklahomans For Equality, for providing Eric’s brilliant musical talent.
