OKC Pride, Inc and OKC Pride Alliance join forces

Okla.City --  OKC Pride Inc, board members will unite with OKC Pride Alliance for the production of 2019 Oklahoma City Pride.

The OKC Pride, Inc board of directors voted to dissolve the organization after the resignation of Interim President, Brandon Odom. The board has been working for the last seven months to help with the investigation of alleged embezzlement by former President, Lori Honeycutt in 2018.

Odom said in resignation letter, “I have been able to successfully investigate internally to gather information now being utilized by the Oklahoma State District Attorney’s office to prosecute the [alleged] offending party.”

Board Treasurer, Alison Scott said, “At this point, we just want to do what is best for the community and as a board we feel like dissolving and putting this chapter behind us is the first step toward healing.”

Former board members, Storm Shenold, Pepper Hamilton, will join the Pride Alliance to help produce this year’s events.

The annual OKC Pride Parade and Festival is June 22. Parade begins at 12 p.m. and Festival begins at 2 p.m. and goes until the bars close. For more information, visit www.oklahomacitypride.org.
