Kalamazoo Pride 2023 is June 2-3
at Arcadia Creek Festival Site in Downtown Kalamazoo

Volunteers are Needed!

Kalamazoo Pride is Friday June 2 and Saturday June 3. OutFront Kalamazoo is looking for Employee Resources Groups, Allies, and other non-lgbtq people to volunteer at Pride this year by helping with setup, takedown, serving drinks, etc.

Many lgbtq people have volunteered and worked Pride for many years, and some
people have volunteered for almost a decade straight. 

These people deserve to enjoy Pride too!

If you are an LGBTQIA+ ally, please consider volunteering your time at this year's


June may be Pride Month,
but Chapel Hill celebrates with our LGBTQIA+ siblings
all year long!
