A Run for the Rainbow: Nebo Pride 2023
One of our favorite times of the year has arrived: Pride season! And here at Nebo, we’re using our rainbow powers to shine through a particularly gray and cloudy year.
It’s 2023, folks. And yet somehow, we’re facing the most aggressive assault on LGBTQIA+ rights we’ve ever seen, with over 450 anti-LGBTQIA+ bills introduced in the last year alone. So this June, we decided to make a statement with this year’s Nebo Pride theme and let the world know that we Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere.
To kick off National Pride Month, we organized a team of racers to attend the annual Atlanta Pride Run, paying homage to our favorite queen with our team name: RuPaul’s Jog Race.
But first, we got together for some team bonding time to tie-dye a batch of limited-edition Pride shirts, designed by our own Kory Gabriel. Of course, our kiki wouldn’t have been complete without watching Paris Is Burning — because streaming is fundamental. And let’s not forget the pasta from LGBTQIA-owned Noni’s Trattoria.
On race day, our team showed up and showed out with in-person and virtual runners. RuPaul’s Jog Race were among the 2,000 participants who raised over $27,000 for those impacted by HIV, an Atlanta Pride Run record.
Let’s Show Them We Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere
