The Orange County Equality Coalition Organization (OCEC) is pleased to announce the return of Orange County Pride this year. After the growing success over the past three years, we wanted to continue to build a strong Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community in Orange County. This is why we are delighted to announce that OC Pride will be “Takin’ it to the Streets” in Santa Ana this year and it will be free to the general public.
