In just over 4 years, Up North Pride has seen a ten-fold growth in attendance from 300 participants in 2014 to over 5000 people in attendance during our 2017 events. Attendees come from all over our region, state and midwest to enjoy a truly grassroots, participant-driven Pride event. We hope you'll join us at one of our many events this year.
A Loud And Proud Production
Up North Pride is presented by Loud and Proud, an anti-racist non-profit production company focused on LGBTQ visibility, education and advocacy in Northern Michigan.
New in 2017
Our costs have more than tripled this year, and to put on all the events for our community, we need additional funds. Every donation gets us closer to our goal and to the future we believe in. Please donate today!
