The fifth annual Pride event, presented by San Benito County and the City of Hollister, took place in front of Hollister City Hall on June 25 to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. The event featured food, performers, guest speakers, face painting, raffles and more. The LGBTQ+ Progress Pride Flag will fly over city hall every June, following the Hollister City Council’s March approval. Celebrated annually in June, Pride Month acknowledges the 1969 Stonewall Riots in Manhattan, a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States.
