OKC PRIDE ALLIANCE
 H A N N A H  R O Y C E 


Howdy! I'm Hannah Royce - a creative and social entrepreneur. I'm also the President and Festival Producer for the Oklahoma City Pride Alliance. Our 501c3 organization was formed during a transitional period in the local 2SLGBTQ+ community in 2019.
This year, we're hosting the Inaugural Downtown Pride Parade and Festival happening June 25-27. The Pride Alliance is dedicated to promoting equality and diversity. Our mission is to champion, celebrate, advance and promote the local 2SLGBTQ+ community. We aim to enhance OKC's visibility as an inclusive and diverse city through intentional programmatic initiatives, in addition to our annual pride events, that amplify queer art, stories, missions, and dreams. 
 H A N N A H ' S  P I C K S 

 S H O P 
I'm a huge fan of all the glorious things Plenty Mercantile has to offer on any given day.

 E A T 
Okay, this is a tough one. But, after a long day (or during one) my favorite place downtown is Barrios in Midtown. Some chips and queso, a diet coke, and that Tijuana caesar or wood-fired fajitas - OMG! 

 P L A Y 
Honestly, when I think of playing downtown, I think of taking a yoga mat, blanket, sunscreen, and a good book to Scissortail Park! It's such a gorgeous, sprawling space - I love the fact that it's in the urban core and I can look north at all the tall buildings. 

 M O R E  F R O M  H A N N A H 

 What encourages you to be a community leader? 
So many other incredible humans in our city inspire me daily. I'm in constant awe of the hard work and dedication of so many working to make our city the best it can be and it only encourages me to continue. 

 What is one thing that makes you proud to be a part of the downtown Oklahoma City community? 
I'm so very proud to be a part of the downtown OKC community because they care so much. And I believe in every effort of theirs - from public art and placemaking to events and marketing. 

 How can people get involved with your organization or mission? 
They can head to okcpridealliance.org to learn more. We're still accepting Parade entries - so, come as you are and show your support for the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
