Western New York’s annual Pride Festival is just too BIG for one weekend... so we’re pleased to announce that –due to popular demand– we’re expanding Pride 2013 to encompass a full week’s worth of celebration, advocacy and community engagement.

SPONSORSHIP

No other event in WNY touches such a varied and large demographic cross section of residents and visitors, while bringing neighbors together to celebrate pride in our community. In previous years we’ve seen over 15,000 in attendance at our Canalside festival alone, and this year we anticipate over 30,000 participants throughout the week. Pride 2013 will include a line-up as diverse as the LGBT community itself, allowing a unique opportunity for your company to customize its support level to the events and activities that best complement its brand and mission. As a Pride sponsor, your dollars not only help to offset the cost of Pride 2013, but also support the Pride Center of WNY’s efforts throughout the year to make our region a safe, healthy, and satisfying place for LGBT people to live, work and establish their families. We appreciate your support toward making Pride 2013 a success.
