You Belong! 
Announcing TC Pride’s newest campaign.

Donate to You Belong!

June 21, 2023

With the MN Legislature’s recent passing of the Trans Refuge Act, and anti-LGBTQ+ legislation on the rise in other parts of the country, many anxious, out-of-state families are hoping to relocate to Minnesota. TC Pride and many other LGBTQ+ non-profit agencies have already received dozens of calls from families looking for assistance—whether it be financial aid, health care referrals, or employment information.  

Funds from our You Belong initiative will help with everything from relocation expenses, educational programming, and collecting the data and resources needed to streamline the relocation process.  


We are so pleased to announce our partnership with artist Rae Senarighi for our beautiful You Belong design. 

We’ll be featuring Rae’s design on future merchandise, all proceeds benefitting the You Belong campaign.

A Little Something For Everyone.

Did you know TC Pride is the largest FREE Pride Festival in the nation?

June 07, 2023

One of reasons we can keep the festival free and open to everyone is our incredible community of volunteers. Every year, hundreds of individuals step up and donate their time and talents. From our Festival, to the 5K Rainbow Run, and the March & Parade, we need community members willing to lend a hand.

From helping line up the parade floats, assisting with festival set-up or take-down, working with the entertainers and vendors, or assisting other festival goers--there really is a little something for everyone.

PLUS: All volunteers will receive a T-shirt, swag bag, as well as a free meal! 

If you are interested in volunteering but have some questions, please send us an email: volunteer@tcpride.org

If you have a few extra hours and are looking to help out the community you love, please considering volunteering with us today!

TC Pride 365

April 26, 2023

When I accepted the position of Executive Director in October, I focused on 3 goals: 1) Make sure everyone in our community feels welcome at all of our events, 2) Create more events by offering year-round programing; and 3) Work with other organizations in the community to create an amazing network of resources. We're running at full speed here at TC Pride trying to achieve those goals. Things are changing, and I can't wait to see you all soon.
