CELEBRATE PRIDE!
with FAHASS

Where everyone feels valued, respected, and loved for who they are.

In 2022, we opened our doors at Pride Center FXBG to provide a safe space for the local LGBTQ+ community. Since then, our reach has expanded in the greater Fredericksburg area with local events, support groups, and social gatherings. This year, we’re connecting with local partners to bring you exciting new ways to celebrate Pride Month in Fredericksburg, VA.
