Conway Pride is a community organization that focuses on building community for LGBTQ+ people and their allies.
Conway Pride Parade and Festival is an annual event held in Conway, AR. Conway Pride was founded in 2004 by John Schenck and Robert Loyd. Although our founders have since passed, they were trailblazers in Arkansas for fighting for LGBTQIA+ rights. They lived in the infamous Pink House in Conway, AR for over 30 years and were a couple for 40 years. Their legacy continues to live on.
