Motor City Pride is a volunteer-driven event celebrating the lives of Michigan's Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender citizens. A weekend packed with multiple events including a family picnic, golf outing, Commitment Ceremony, parade, and beer garden. Motor City Pride culminates as the largest LGBT gathering in Michigan and is newly located this year at Hart Plaza downtown Motor City.
A summer riverfront festival has open-ended appeal. There is something truly energizing, exciting and empowering about holding Motor City Pride in a location where people work, shop and live. Holding a Pride event in the historic Hart Plaza solidifies the notion of LGBT people as active parts of the larger community.
Equality Michigan is Michigan's statewide organization serving the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) and allied communities. Motor City Pride is an important part of building bridges in the larger community and advancing the mission of Equality Michigan to promote equality and to secure freedom from violence, intimidation and discrimination for GLBT persons throughout Michigan.
Through Motor City Pride and other community events, Equality Michigan continues working toward our vision of a society characterized by a strong commitment to universal civil rights; safe communities, workplaces and schools; stable families and self-reliant GLBT individuals.
