Taking PRIDE in Birmingham!

Happy Pride Month, Birmingham! While this is a special month of celebration, working to ensure and further the rights and freedoms of our LGBTQ+ community is a year-round priority. That’s why just one of the things we’re celebrating this month is Mayor Randall Woodfin’s forward-thinking decision last year to appoint Josh Coleman as the City of Birmingham’s first LGBTQ+ Liaison, partnering with the many organizations and individuals working to advance equality every day. We are also enjoying City Hall’s light display honoring our LGBTQ+ citizens, and we hope you are too!

Birmingham Pride is celebrating its 41st year with some creative, exciting, and inclusive events! Here are some of our picks!
