RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey had this to say during the company’s initial announcement of PRIDE & JOY in a Live Stream on the company’s Twitch Channel, twitch.tv/risedtwa:
That word means many powerful things to many people.
To our talent and our fans, it has meant making a better environment for Women’s Wrestling, a place to train and develop aspiring women wrestlers. It has meant giving a platform to Today’s Best, Tomorrow’s Brightest to pass on knowledge and elevate new talents, building a pipeline of all of professional wrestling.
But the word RISE means so much more to so many communities.
June 30 is one of the the most important days of the year in Chicago for the LGBTQ+ Community. It is a day to come together, to embrace what makes us all different, unique and to unite everyone in one place, with one love. June 30 is one of the largest Pride Parades worldwide, and it happens right here in Chicago. In 2018, an estimated 1 Million people attended or marched in Chicago’s Pride Parade.
June 30 will be a day without judgment, a day all will truly feel love on the RISE.
June 30, we want to bring our talent and fans together again in Chicago. We want to open our doors, our arms and our hearts to the members of the LGBTQ+ Community in Chicago.
