Porch Pride is back! While the pandemic is still keeping large in person events at bay, we strive to keep Pride alive in these trying times!
About this event
Porch Pride recognizes that Stonewall was a riot against police brutality of the queer and trans community. The LGBTQ+ liberation movement is inextricably linked with the Black Lives Matter Movement. None of us are free until all are free. #BlackLivesMatter #BlackTransLivesMatter
What is Porch Pride?
Porch Pride is a socially distant and safe way to celebrate Pride outside with other members of the LGBTQ community while still remaining in a virtual setting. On June 5th starting at 11AM EST, we will get all decked out in our Pride gear, go outside onto our porches, driveways or the sidewalks in front of our apartment buildings. Play music on your Bluetooth speakers and wave at the other members of your community celebrating outside of their houses and keep Pride alive! Event will be streamed on the Remo platform. Login on your devices and participate from anywhere!

Tickets and VIP packages:
We want to make sure Porch Pride is accessible for all members of the LGBTQ+ community. The general admission ticket for an individual is $25. However, we are offering a donation based (pay what you can) ticket for students, unemployed/furloughed individuals, and seniors as we know the community has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The money from the tickets goes directly back into the event so that we can provide you with the loudest, proudest, gayest virtual Pride you've ever seen.

How will we stay socially distant?
We strongly recommend following your state guidelines for social distancing. Let's enjoy each other's company from a safe distance!
What if I'm the only LGBTQ person in my community?
Celebrate virtually! Take pictures and go on Twitter with the hashtag #porchpride21 and tag @lezhangoutpod or join our Lez Hang Out livestream from Ellie or Leigh's porch where they'll be hanging out, playing some music and enjoying Porch Pride!
How will other people know I'm participating in Porch Pride?
Grab a Porch Pride t-shirt, tank, tote to let everyone know you're celebrating! Wrap yourself in a rainbow flag! Or just wave in gay! They'll know 😉 And you can post on social media with the hashtag #porchpride21 and tag @lezhangoutpod so we can see everyone celebrating!
All members of the LGBTQIA+ community and allies are welcome to participate!!
