Pittsburgh Pride at First Friday


  • 5120 Penn Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15224 United States (map)

Join us on First Friday for a People’s Pride celebration - we’re selling emapandas on the street, hosting an art exhibit downstairs, and throwing a party upstairs with DJ Amos, DJ Scotty, and the Mayday Brass Band.

People’s Pride is a space that we’ve had to carve out for ourselves. It’s a space that is explicitly pro-black, pro-trans, and intergenerational. We’ve had to work tirelessly to create a space that centers and celebrates our joy, our liberation, and our bodies. At our art exhibit, we’re doing the same.

At the art exhibit, on the walls of the first floor - we’ll be hanging up parts of Queer History/Art in Pittsburgh that we’ve found. We’ll also be highlighting current artists and their work as they vend, promote, and share their vision with you. The point is to have this space be a place where we carve out for ourselves. A space where we’re centering art, humanity, and joy. Artist lineup coming soon!

Upstairs is the dance party, bar, and live music. And outside we’re selling homemade empanadas.

All money raised will go towards creating protest art for People’s Pride 2019.
