Bloomington PRIDE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to create safe and inclusive spaces for people of all ages, celebrate LGBTQ+ arts and culture, and enrich the Bloomington and South Central Indiana communities through educational and cultural awareness events. We support a range of LGBTQ+ programs and events, including the Prism Youth Community, LGBT Aging & Caring Network, PRIDE Film Festival, and Pridefest summer celebration.
Aging & Caring Network
The network provides support, plans social activities, and creates educational opportunities for the aging LGBT population in Monroe County and surrounding communities.
Pridefest (formerly Summerfest) celebrates the LGBTQ+ community through live artistic and music performances, educational workshops with community leaders, interactive activities, and more. The 2017 event takes place on Saturday, August 26 on Kirkwood Avenue between Walnut and Lincoln Streets.
Pride Film Festival
Founded in 2003, this three-day event explores a wide variety of issues and situations involving the LGBTQ+ communities through film and live performance. The 2018 festival will take place January 25–27 at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.
Bloomington PRIDE is run and managed by volunteers. In other words, we can't do any of this without you and there's even more we can achieve with your help.
We always need volunteer support at the film festival, Pridefest, and other events.
