PRIDE Talks is an annual program held by the Northern Marianas Humanities Council each year in June.  Last year’s event was the screening of the film “Boy Erased” at the Regal Cinemas with guest speakers from the LGBTQ+ community, a doctor and a pastor who shared experiences, statistics and perspectives.

This year the council is wanting to capture the voices of the LGBTQ+ in the CNMI by having them share their unique stories, creativity and experiences. 

Join the council in celebrating PRIDE in the CNMI.
