The City has released a schedule of events for Pride Month this June, Mayor Breanna Lungo-Koehn, announced. This year’s slate, organized in partnership with the City’s Pride Committee and community partners, builds on the inaugural event last year and expands the City’s offerings for the entire community.  

“We have a fun, diverse schedule of events for everyone in the community to enjoy this Pride Month,” said Mayor Lungo-Koehn. “Special thank you to our Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Frances Nwajei, and the Medford Pride Planning Committee for their hard work to make this celebration of love and inclusion happen in our City.”  

“Our Pride Planning Committee has helped craft an immersive and inspiring month of events that celebrate the culture and vibrancy of our LGBTQ+ community in Medford,” DEI Director Frances Nwajei said. “We’re building on the success of the inaugural Pride month celebration last year and really making Medford a model that other places can emulate.”
