South Central Minnesota Pride offers tips for celebrating Pride Month during COVID-19

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - June is Pride Month, and South Central Minnesota Pride has advice for celebrating safely amid COVID-19.

Organizations are finding ways to host online platforms, virtual gatherings and other spaces.

We’re here to support you, and we will be able to come together again and celebrate in person," said Executive Director Jeni Kolstad of South Central Minnesota Pride.
