Werk your woke ass at Motor City Pride 2018 this weekend



Chase the rainbow at Motor City Pride, which returns as Michigan’s largest pride festival with two days of awareness, fun, and fabulosity.

While all of June may be dedicated to celebrating the love, diversity, and many adversities overcome by the LGBTQ and allied communities, this year’s Motor City pride is louder and prouder than ever. This year’s celebration will feature five stages with more than 150 performers including Little Animal, Killer Flamingos, Dirk Kroll Band, and DJ Marquis, as well as more than 120 vendors. The heart of the weekend is undoubtedly the parade, which will twerk itself through downtown on Sunday at noon.

Motor City Pride 2018 Festivities begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 and noon on Sunday, June 10 at Hart Plaza; motorcitypride.org; Admission is $5.
