QTPOC Pride Social honors the fight for equality

qtpoc_pridefest_milwaukeeThe QTPOC Pride Social happens Saturday, June 8 at the Miller Level Up VIP deck from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Pride was born out of the protests started by queer and trans people of color.

Today, we honor their fight, and the continued fight for marginalized people within the LGBTQ community, by coming together to collaborate, celebrate and strengthen our message of equality.

The QTPOC Pride Social is a place for all queer and trans people of color to intentionally hold space and create community. Join us for fun activities, history lessons, snacks, health and social resources, and socializing with our friends, families and loved ones in a QTPOC dominant space.

Join us at the Miller Level Up VIP Space from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 8. The event is open to QTPOC and their friends and families.

We will have signage explaining the event, who it’s for, and the importance of creating spaces for QTPOC people.

Sponsors include ZAO MKE, Milwaukee LGBT Community Center, Health Connections, Sixteenth Street Community Health Center and Milwaukee Pride, Inc.

Connect with our Facebook event for ongoing updates.
