Third Saturdays

Third Saturdays presented by Virtual Arizona Pride

The demand for this type of programming has been so great that the team behind #VirtualAZPride has decided to keep going with a monthly series on the third Saturday of every month. Our Third Saturday series will feature a select, curated day of programming similar to what you saw at #VirtualAZPride, from partners old and new.
