NEA Pride, the local LGBTQ+ advocacy group in Jonesboro, are having an event this weekend called "PrideFest."
It's the first time the group is throwing the event. Shelly Anderson and Yesenia Hernandez are with NEA Pride. They spoke to KASU's Brandon Tabor about the event, how they got involved with the organization, and what they hope the community will get out of it.
PrideFest will be in Downtown Jonesboro on Saturday, October 12, starting at 10am. More details about the event and NEA Pride can be found at neapride.org.
