The Motor City Pride Parade is this Sunday June 3, at 11:00 a.m.  It will step off at Fort Street and proceed down Griswold to Hart Plaza.  The parade has grown from 20011 with several more entries, floats and three bands.

In addition to the parade, Michigan’s largest gay, lesbian and transgender festival will take place June 2 & 3, 2012 in Hart Plaza on the Detroit riverfront.  The Plaza will serve as the center point for our community to come together, celebrate our diversity, and work for equality for all Michigan citizens.

The festival is from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, 2012 and Noon to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 3, 2012.  Visit  www.motorcitypride.org to view festival information and a complete schedule of events.

Motor City Pride is excited to showcase acts such as Dave Aude, Barbara Payton, Kelsey B, Julissa Veloz, Dani Rice, Josey Greenwell, Kerli, Kimberly Cole, Nini Sky, Hypercrush, a Big Freedia dance tutorial, and a host of other great national and local acts that will perform on our four Motor City Pride Stages.

Hart Plaza also allows us to expand the Family Picnic and the Family Area.  The Picnic will be held Saturday, June 2, 2012 from noon to 2:00 p.m.  Participants are asked to bring a picnic lunch and we will provide treats and games.  The Family Area will be held during the festival and will include face painting, puppet shows, arts and crafts and a visit by Dr. Dinosaur.

*Motor City Pride is a project of Equality Michigan and wishes to thank our sponsors that help make the event possible.
