This Sunday, August 15th from 12 P.M. – 6 P.M. the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center will be hosting Lehigh Valley Pride outdoors at the JCC of the Lehigh Valley in Allentown. Featuring performances by “RuPaul’s Drag Race” star, Kylie Sonique Love and Ariel Versace.
Over 125 artists, non-profits and stores will be in attendance. Masks are highly encouraged and will be available for those who need one.
The team at Discover Lehigh Valley welcomes LGBTQ+ folks and their allies to spend the weekend up in Lehigh Valley! With a pride pre-party, interfaith service and after party, Lehigh Valley is the perfect getaway this weekend. The Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce put together an LGBTQ Friendly Business Directory of businesses that have signed the chamber’s LGBTQ pledge.
Spend the night at the luxurious Renaissance Allentown Hotel.
