Gulfport is known for many great things that often attract many visitors to our city, as well as new residents from across the U.S. One very important Gulfport character is the value we place in celebrating our diversity. Thismakesourcitywelcoming, funandalwayscolorful. JuneisPrideMonth and we are definitely ready to celebrate alongside many other municipalities nationwide, including our neighbors in St. Petersburg.
I thought it would be helpful to highlight a few key actions by the City of Gulfport that clearly affirms our commitment to our LGBTQ residents, visitors and friends. More importantly, we are always proud to serve as an example to other cities and communities. I know many residents already know all this...but we keep getting new folks into Gulfport. Enjoy!
