About Us: Celebrating Heritage, Embracing Diversity
Welcome to Ann Arbor Pride, where our journey is steeped in history, diversity, and the spirit of inclusivity. Ann Arbor Pride is not just an event; it's a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community's vibrant tapestry, and it stands as a testament to the progress and unity we've achieved together.
Ann Arbor Pride: A Legacy of Inclusion
First celebrated in 1995, Ann Arbor Pride (previously known as OUTFest) is a weekend festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan, celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer identities, community, and allyship hosted by the Jim Toy Community Center. Ann Arbor Pride brings entertainment, community, vendors, fun, and most importantly, Pride.
The Jim Toy Community Center: Where Advocacy Meets Action
Central to our mission is the Jim Toy Community Center, a cornerstone of LGBTQ+ advocacy and support in Ann Arbor. Named after the iconic LGBTQ+ activist Jim Toy, the center is a living tribute to a trailblazer who dedicated his life to advancing the rights and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community.
