At just 13-years-old, Molly Pinta’s goal of bringing a Pride Parade to her hometown of Buffalo Grove, IL became a reality in June 2019. Pinta, who came out as gay in 2018, was inspired to stage a Buffalo Grove Pride event after attending the inaugural Pride Parade in nearby Aurora, IL. Pinta and her parents, who have long been advocates for social justice is their town, founded the nonprofit Pinta Pride Project to support their cause. Pinta's overwhelming success in spearheading the effort made the local news and landed her on the Today Show in New York City. An active singer, actor and dancer in local productions, she wants to follow in her parents' footsteps and become a teacher while continuing to run their new nonprofit to keep pride coming to Buffalo Grove every year.

Listen to Pinta discuss the importance of having a support system:

what have you accomplished?? Telling the world you are gay?? Wanting to parade it down the streets?? Like it is really something to be PROUD of cause you told your parents you are gay?? And now you want to shove it down everyones throat because you came out?? Like you want a big pat on the back because you are gay?? Wow Me, I teach my kids that Gods laws come first. He created us and you ya know. Do something that would make God proud of you, not yourself.
