For almost a quarter of a century Ann Arbor’s Jim Toy Community Center has been hosting an iteration of Ann Arbor Pride, formerly known as OutFest. This year is no different and starting on Friday, Aug. 3 through Aug. 5 attendees are encouraged to attend and celebrate the LGBTQ community.
“Ann Arbor Pride is a celebration of LGBTQ and allied community accomplishments, as well as an opportunity to understand how to build on the success of establishing marriage equality and what to focus on next,” write event organizers. “This celebration is meant to be inclusive to people from all walks of life. Event proceeds help benefit the Jim Toy Community Center.”
Included in the festivities will be a performance by Brian Justin Crum of America’s Got Talent fame on Saturday, Aug. 4 as well as a silent auction to benefit the Jim Toy Community Center. Other activities focus on all ages featuring a “kid zone, inspirational guest speakers, workshops, gaming, yoga, art, food, dancing and more.”
The 24th annual Ann Arbor Pride will be held in Ann Arbor’s Kerrytown District with weekend activities open to all attendees. Interested volunteers are encouraged to sign up to help event organizers at jimtoycenter.org. More information about the event, along with a full schedule, can be found online at annarborpride.com.
