June is Pride Month, and local organization Cincinnati Pride has created a comprehensive list of events to educate, promote awareness, and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community in the Greater Cincinnati region. We may not have the Pride Parade or Pride Festival this year, but there are still plenty of fun in-person parties and virtual performances that will surely add some color and vibrancy to your usual event calendar this month.
This Sunday, Below Zero Lounge is hosting the British Invasion Drag Brunch, with local drag queens performing as British pop culture icons. Tickets include a brunch menu provided by A Catered Affair, as well as a complimentary cocktail upon arrival followed by a raucous show from some of the best drag performers in the city. Reservations will be sold as either a 2- or 4-top table, and tickets are $31 per person. To purchase tickets, click here.
Later in the month, Cincinnati Pride will be hosting Pride Market in the Park on Sunday, June 27, located at Washington Park. This event will feature 25 LGBTQ+ and ally-owned retail businesses, and is hosted in partnership with the Greater Cincinnati Gay Chamber of Commerce.
How would you market the Cincinnati Region? Local marketing initiative Cincinnati Experience (CX) is seeking input from residents in the Cincinnati region to identify some of the key attributes that best define our region, which will help guide marketing efforts targeted at visitors, talent, and businesses in other parts of the country. Those who complete the survey will be entered into a drawing for a $250 Queen City Card. To complete the survey, click here.
