We believe there are several ways in which East Central Minnesota Pride has improved the quality of life in this part of the state.  It serves the vulnerable, LGBTQ youth populations, especially those who are at-risk, showing that there are other LGBTQ people nearby to offer support and encouragement.  It serves as a mechanism for civil rights, by being a visible presence representing LGBTQ people working and living in the five-county area.
