Lexington Pride Festival
11 a.m. – 11 p.m., June 25
Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza
Presented in part by the Gay and Lesbian Services Organization, a non-profit group that has been working to improve the quality of life for Lexington’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered (GLBT) community since the late ’70s, the festival’s purpose is multi-faceted -
in addition to creating visibility and raising awareness for Lexington’s GLBT population, the event is a celebration for that community and its supporters as well. The day-long event is free and family-friendly and open to all the public, regardless of their lifestyle orientation.
Entertainment throughout the day includes a “Lexington’s Got Talent” competition, a poetry reading, a proclamation by Mayor Jim Gray, drag shows, and headlining musical acts from national performers, such as Amber and DJ D-Stu. Visit the organization’s website for a complete schedule of events throughout the day.
