On June 1, starting at 1:00PM, we will first gather at Gilead Presbyterian Church, a welcoming congregation in Carmel, to hear from a lineup of local speakers before heading over to Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park, where we will have a day filled with entertainment, music by DJ Brittany Carrasco, dancing, an open mic and family activities. There will be 30+ vendors to browse, including two food trucks, several food tents and many local nonprofits/ educational organizations; join us for Drag Story Time with Angel Elektra , a music circle by Miss Patti, face painting by our resident artists, an open mic hosted by I.Den.t.T to share your talents, and of course, fierce fun with our hosts, Angel Elektra and Shay D'Pines !

This year we focus on trans visibility and counteracting the rising tide of hate, especially against trans youth. LGBTQ+ people, advocates and supporters continue to be harassed and defamed both nationally and locally, so once again we cannot back down or forget what Pride is really all about. Celebrating our community is part of that, but please join us at Gilead Church to hear our speakers and drive proudly through our community with your cars decorated. Our hosts will lead the way.
