Bethel CT Pride supports and celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and equality. Help us grow.

Bethel CT Pride began as the first and only LGBTQ+ pride parade and celebration in the greater Danbury and Northwestern CT area.  Now, we also run four monthly programs for the queer community. We are committed to keeping our celebration a tradition for years to come and maintaining—and expanding—our programming throughout the year.

In 2017, our inaugural event brought over 500 attendees to the downtown Bethel area, a number we were pleased to match at the 2018 celebration. In 2019, over one-thousand attendees, 20 sponsors, and over 60 vendors made our third annual flagship event possible.

During our flagship event, Bethel businesses benefit from the surge in customers and the opportunity to serve the community, fostering a sense of camaraderie with local patrons and establishing relationships with new clientele. In addition, our Bethel CT Pride social media channels allow us to connect with community members year-round. Our primary channel, @BethelCTPride on Facebook, carries a following of nearly 900+ and continues to grow.  The total organic reach of our events annually hit 35K+! We also have a following on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and Telegram that allows us to further broaden our reach.

Your sponsorship ensures Bethel CT Pride can remain a staple in the community. In addition, your support will help us expand our programming throughout the year to include after school events, networking opportunities for adults, community education, and more.
