The story of Taos Pride.


Taos Pride was started by Robert Quintana. An energetic and magnetic character who was born and raised in Taos. He wanted to throw the gayest party in Kit Carson Park that anyone had ever seen. It originally started as “Gay Pride Taos”. Robert only had a couple months to plan and put together the biggest gay party the town had ever seen. It was going to take a bit of help. Amazing people came together and Robert started visiting all the pride events in the state to let people know what was coming up.

Getting the word out

Robert started with nothing. It was his creative genius that launched the “Gayest Bake Sale Ever” and a series of pet friendly events that brought in contributions that made everything possible.
