About Lake Effect Pride Event

Lake Effect Pride. It's a pride thing. It's a history thing. It honors the start of the LGBT+ movement. We were born from Stonewall.

Each year the OutCenter sets aside a night like most LGBT+ communities do across the Country to honor the spark that lit the fire for LGBT+ Equality. Some do parades, some do programs, some do parties.

WE LOOK TO OUR ALLIES TO JOIN US IN PRIDE.

WE NEED YOU NOW. MORE THAN EVER.

The OutCenter calls the LGBT+ community and our allies together every year to remember and to rekindle the move forward. 

We do this to honor - those who have worked hard to create more inclusive and just "communities that care." 

We do this to educate - ourselves and each other about the work that still needs to be done. 

We do this to celebrate - to join with you as we move together toward a more equal Southwest Michigan.

2017 Lake Effect Pride will be held at Pebblewood Country Club on June 16th. Get tickets and information here.


Many thanks to these 2016 Lake Effect Pride Sponsors!
