Beaumont’s very own Pride festival started in 2014, but the non-profit dissolved last year due to the annual financial burden, according to former volunteer chair Jacqueline Hays.

However, Hays believes that others in the community will step forward to keep Beaumont Pride going.

“I … am expecting to see some movement in April because of Lamar Pride month,” she said. “We’re sure the community will take it over.” She mentioned the LGBT group in Orange as a possibility.
