CLEVELAND PRIDE 2017 – Calling All Sponsors, Vendors, Marchers and Volunteers!

CLEVELAND PRIDE 2017 – Calling All Sponsors, Vendors, Marchers and Volunteers!

Cleveland Pride is gearing up for its 28th Annual Cleveland Pride parade, rally and festival held on Saturday June 24th, 2017 at Voinovich Park

Cleveland Pride’s annual parade, rally and festival is the single largest and fastest growing LGBT and straight-allied event each year!!!  No other one-time or annual LGBT gathering, benefit, festival, conference or celebration attracts large scale numbers in the Northeast Ohio area. Make sure you are a part of our 28th Anniversary of Cleveland Pride on Saturday, June, 24th, 2017; Parade “Steps Off” promptly at Noon.

Cleveland Pride’s mission is to: promote individuals, organizations, and businesses who are willing to be advocates for inclusion; create long-lasting relationships with diverse groups and cultural leaders in Northeast Ohio and many communities in the surrounding Midwest region; and increase the visibility of LGBT activists and straight allies through its year-round activities, including the celebration at the annual heritage pride festival, parade and rally in June.

During our annual pride celebration, individuals and organizations join our event to demonstrate their mutual respect and appreciation of the similarities and differences that make each individual and organization unique in our community. We enjoy the participation of people in all classes and categories of age, race, culture, educational achievement, ethnicity, life/skill-based work experience, active military or veteran, socioeconomic, disability, and those who choose (or not)  to embrace a broad spectrum of faith-based practices or religions.

We are proud to proclaim that we have an extremely diversified set of sponsors, vendors, parade marchers and volunteers.  We continue to grow in numbers and diversity.

So, welcome to all those transgender, asexual, bisexual, trisexual, pansexual, gay, lesbian, queer/questioning, intersex, undecided, alternative, and heterosexual allies to our 28th Annual Cleveland Pride Parade, Rally and Festival.   Spread the word… find our event on Facebook at: Cleveland Pride 2017 – Annual Parade, Rally & Festival (Saturday, June 24th, 2017)
