Casper, Wyoming celebrated PRIDE weekend June 8-11. And, while supporters expected to make an impact to their community of 60,000, they may not have expected to make such an impact nationally.

MTV sent a crew to the pride events and put together a short feature on the LGBTQ community in Wyoming. An edited version of the feature aired on MTV Television, and the full version at just over 6 minutes was posted to the MTV News YouTube page.

MTV journalist Marcus Patrick Ellsworth also reacted to Casper's event by writing a piece titled "What Everyone Can Learn From Pride In A Town Like Casper, Wyoming" 

A diverse selection of community members were featured in the piece and so was a bunch of footage from the parade and weekend activities.
