Outside With Pride

Rate this story:

We go outdoors to find solitude and the beauty of nature, but also to be closer to our community and ourselves. That was so apparent this month, as hundreds of REI employees, friends and family members took to the streets around the country to celebrate their community.

June is LGBT Pride Month, and we're proud to say that we represented #OutsideWithPride at parades in Washington D.C., Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle. Here are some of the highlights.
