NORFOLK, Neb. -- The month of June in the U.S. is PRIDE month and Nebraska, just like everywhere else, is celebrating it. 

Norfolk Area Pride is a non-profit organization that provides different services and support to the LGBTQ+ community. 

Mo Bailey, who is the president of the organization, talked about what PRIDE month means to her and the rest of the organization.

“This month for us is just about coming together as a community,” said Bailey. “[It's about] celebrating who we are, how far we’ve come,” she added. 

Many would say Nebraska has come a long way with people in the LGBTQ+ community over the years. Bailey also mentioned what she likes about the progression that has been made.

“It’s excellent that we have pride organizations,” Bailey said. “There are more resources here now than there were years ago,” she added.

But, she said more needs to be done.

“As a community, there’s still work to be done,” added Bailey. “We’ve come a long way, but we still have a long way to go,” she said.

Coming up on September 10th is the Norfolk Pride Festival at the Norfolk Arts Center.
