BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Two local groups organized a ‘Pride Ride” in Bakersfield on Saturday in support of the local LGTBQ+ community.
The Free Mom Hugs group and Creative Crossing held their ride through the Oleander neighborhood, Westchester area and Downtown Saturday afternoon.
“I think it is very important to show recognition to all under the umbrella of LGBTQA, protect trans rights, protect trans youth, protect all communities in our town,” Mario Gonzalez, a member of Creative Crossing said.
“We’re all puzzle pieces, and if we were all the same, then we wouldn’t make a great puzzle.”
Gonzalez says this is the first, but it certainly will not be the last Pride Ride in Bakersfield.
