Casper Pride is committed to working with journalists from Natrona County, Wyoming and beyond to share the unique stories of our organization and most importantly the LGBTQ+ community.
Pride in the Community

Casper Pride strives to balance providing opportunities for members of the press to cover Casper Pride events, tell the stories of members of the LGBTQ+ community in central Wyoming and report on issues that affect LGBTQ+ people in Wyoming while protecting the unique needs for privacy many members of the community need for their own health and safety.
To that end, we have compiled a set of policies and resources aimed at providing a positive experience for both the press and the LGBTQ+ community at Casper Pride events.
Media Polices & Resources
- All Casper Pride events that are free and open to the public will be open to the press. Casper Pride may set up photography free sections of an event for those who wish not to be photographed. Members of the press are asked to respect those wishes.
- Events that are ticketed and not open to the public will not be open to the press without expressed consent from Casper Pride. Journalists who purchase a ticket to an event will be considered attendees and are asked to not engage in reporting at the event.
- When interviewing members of the LGBTQ+ community, we ask you to keep in mind that our community is diverse. Best practice for journalists is to ask people how they identify and refer to them as such in interviews and reporting.
- Casper Pride is willing to assist members in the media to identify subjects willing to speak to press about issue affecting our community.
- GLAAD has compiled a great resource for members of the media, including LGBTQ+ and Trans Terminology Glossaries.
