Indy Pride Launch Party & Indy Pride Pageant Presented by Tito's Handmade Vodka

From the event description:

Join us as we announce our Pride month related festivities beginning at our Indy Pride Launch Party, followed by our Indy Pride Pageant. Grab a drink and hear about the exciting events planned for our community during May and June as we celebrate Pride! The Indy Pride Contest has had a long and prosperous legacy. Originally this was a competition to name a Miss Hoosier 250, a queen to represent the annual pride tricycle race. This contest has since held the names Miss Circle City IN Pride, Circle City IN Pride Ambassadors, and Indy Pride Ambassadors. Due to the increasing acceptance of different gender identities and drag performance styles, in 2017 the binary pageant system was dropped and we shifted to become one of the only non-binary drag pageants in the country. As Pride continues to evolve, the contest was renamed Indy Pride Pageant in 2019!

When: Sunday, May 5, 6:30-11 p.m.
Where: Gregs Indy, 231 E. 16th St.
Admission: Free
