Details have been announced for this year’s Pride Banquet and Awards Ceremony, and nominations are now being accepted for the awards portion of the event.
The event will once again be held at the Ukrainian Cultural Center in Warren at 7 p.m. June 25, and will include entertainment, dinner, dancing and an awards ceremony.
The Pride Banquet is presented collaboratively by Affirmations, the Black Pride Society, Forum Foundation, Triangle Foundation/Michigan Equality, the Michigan AIDS Coalition, AL GAMEA, Dignity Detroit, the Ruth Ellis Center, the Metropolitan Community Church of Detroit and the Motor City Bears.
This year’s theme for the annual dinner, which celebrates Pride and recognizes local LGBT movers and shakers, is “Re Vamped,” promising to have more celebration and less presentations. As such, dress is business casual or vampire costumes.
Awards will be given out in the categories of business, diversity and inclusion, lifetime achievement, media, political, people’s choice, rising star, community spirit, sports and volunteer. Nominations are open through April 30, and nominees must contribute to the LGBT community in southeastern Michigan.
Tickets for the banquet are $40 and can be purchased at Just 4 Us in Ferndale, Five15 Media, Mojo and More in Royal Oak, or through the Michigan AIDS Coalition at 248-545-1435, or the Forum Foundation at 586-573-9932.
