Molly is a gay, 12-year-old student at Twin Groves Middle School in Buffalo Grove who was so inspired by Aurora's Inaugural Pride Parade last year that she just had to have one in her home town.  She and her family have long been advocates for social justice issues in their town, but having many gay family members and friends, pride is the closest to home.  Molly has always been lucky to have many amazing opportunities in the town of Buffalo Grove and has been a longtime actor, singer and dancer in Big Deal Production's shows.  She is also an animal lover and enjoys spending time with her dogs and cats.  She loves Pentatonix, Ellen, and reading. 

Molly has aspirations of becoming a teacher like her mom and dad, and continuing to run their new nonprofit, The Pinta Pride Project, to keep pride coming to Buffalo Grove every year and to support other young people in bringing their own events.  Molly wants to make being gay normal and seen.

 
 

We could not have done this without you.

 

The Pinta Pride Project was inspired whole heartedly by the community that it serves. We aim to increase LGBT+ awareness within suburban communities and hope you will join us on this journey. If you are new to our organization or been with us since day 1, thank you. Your support is so vital to the growth of our community— and we’re so glad you’re here.

With love,

The Pintas

BG PRIDE 2020

Help us do it again. But, bigger.

Molly’s moxie and confidence—combined with her determination to crowdfund Buffalo Grove’s inaugural pride parade—caught the attention of 2019 Chicago Pride Parade officials, who named the 13-year-old this year’s Youth Grand Marshal, calling her “a shining example of the hard work and sacrifices” of LGBTQ activists throughout history.
