Pride Week Coming To TC This Week
By Beth Milligan | October 11, 2021
In the past, June has been a beacon for queer people everywhere as shops, streets, and social media pages fill with rainbows for Pride month … but everything paused in 2020.
That year, Traverse City’s Up North Pride celebration was postponed to October to keep gays and allies healthy and safe, with plenty of time for COVID vaccinations. The event will be a festive, fun week starting on Wednesday October 13th and ending with the Big Gay Brunch on October 17th.
Up North Pride organizers have worked hard to celebrate Traverse City’s queer community with a beautiful celebration of love that no pandemic could crush. This week’s edition of Northern Express, a sister publication of The Ticker, offers a rundown of three top events to attend this week, including the Visibility March, Comedy Show, and Pride Picnic. The Northern Express can be read online or picked up free of charge from kiosks at nearly 700 locations in 14 counties in northern Michigan.
