Join Up North Pride June 18-24, 2018 in Downtown Traverse City, Michigan.

The Michael Chetcuti Foundation presents Up North Pride 2018! Traverse City's Official LGBT Pride Celebration and Michigan's Premier Destination Pride event is happening June 18-24 in downtown Traverse City.

We have a week filled with LGBT activities and events for the whole family. Our aim with every event is to educate, celebrate, and advocate for the queer community and beyond. In our first five years, Up North Pride has grown to be the largest participant-driven LGBT Pride March in Michigan and Michigan's Premier Destination Pride Celebration as well as a leader in Northern Michigan's LGBT advocacy.  Join us as we continue our work to make Northern Michigan a more diverse, inclusive, and safe place for everyone.
