Middletown Pride

June is Pride Month

Pride Month commemorates years of struggle for civil rights and the ongoing pursuit of equal justice under the law for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community, as well as the accomplishments of LGBTQ individuals.

National LGBTQ Task Force

The National LGBTQ Task Force is dedicated to achieving freedom and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer people, and their families through proactive, targeted, change-inducing initiatives.

Pride in Connecticut

To advance the rights, health, history and culture of the LGBTQ community, local and state leaders are coming together to create Equality Connecticut.

Connecticut is a place for everyone. Check out these 2024 Pride Events from the Visit CCT website.

“It takes more than a sign, a fabulous outfit or a month of parades. Pride has to resonate from within; shine out to everyone around you. It has mean something to you and only you first before you announce it to the world.” —Solange Nicole

“How many years has it taken people to realize that we are all brothers and sisters and human beings in the human race?” —Marsha P. Johnson

“Equality means more than passing laws. The struggle is really won in the hearts and minds of the community, where it really counts.” —Barbara Gittings

“To be afraid is to behave as if the truth were not true.” —Bayard Rustin
