Motor City Pre-Pride Community Meeting

Motor City Pride will host a pre-Pride community meeting at 6:30 p.m. on May 23 at TechTown, 440 Burroughs St. in Detroit.

"The meeting is to inform individuals and groups about the plans for the festival, and to hear their ideas as we fine tune details," said Dave Wait, chairperson of the festival and parade June 10-11 at Hart Plaza in Detroit. "We feel that the more people that know about the plans, the better the experience for all attendees."

This year, MCP will gather and pay respect to those lost to violence both within the Michigan LGBTQ community and globally, including the 49 lives that were tragically lost at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.

MCP invites the community to join the organization in a candlelight vigil at 8 p.m. on June 10 following the close of the festival that night. The vigil is open to everyone in the community who seeks peace and tolerance, and will be free of charge to attend. Illumination devices will be provided as supplies permit.

The application for the MCP Pride Parade is now available online. This year's parade will be themed "Stronger Together" as the state of Michigan comes together as a community. More details are available on the MCP Facebook page.
