For seven years, the SameSex Art Exhibit, City Lights Art Gallery, and community sponsors have brought LGBTQ people and allies together in July to celebrate Pride, art, and community in downtown Bridgeport.
This year, attendees can visit the new location of City Lights Gallery at 265 Golden Hill St. Downtown Bridgeport between 5:30 PM and 8:30 PM, and the Pride march steps off at 7:45 PM.
According to the Facebook event, a variety show follows at 8:30 PM to benefit City Lights and the New England Ballet Company at the Downton Cabaret Theatre.
A $25 contribution covers all above activities.

Triangle Community Center will be tabling during the block party with other community organizations and marching at the LGBTQ Pride Parade portion. Attendees can learn more about Triangle Community Center, and TCC can learn more about you and what you want to see in Bridgeport for the LGBTQ community year-round.
Presently, Triangle Community Center hosts an LGBTQ youth group and LGBTQ Adult Monthly Daytime Social in Bridgeport at the Center for Family Justice, which were launched late 2016. The Bridgeport LGBTQ community is also able to access case management services every Friday at the Center for Family Justice. TCC staff will be at Bridgeport Pride to talk about these efforts and further existing needs with community members Thursday, July 20.
