The Indy Pride Pageant has had a long and prosperous legacy. Originally this was a competition to name a Miss Hoosier 250, a queen to represent the annual pride tricycle race. This contest has since held the names Miss Circle City IN Pride, Circle City IN Pride Ambassadors, and Indy Pride Ambassadors. Due to the increasing acceptance of different gender identities and drag performance styles, in 2017 the binary pageant system was dropped and we shifted to become one of the only non-binary drag pageants in the country.
Indy Pride is committed to accessibility and inclusion for all members of the community. As part of this commitment, Indy Pride has teamed up with LUNA Language Services for American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation for Indy Pride Season Events. If you require ASL interpretation or have any other accessibility needs, please don’t hesitate to reach out [email protected].
Indy Pride is teaming up with QUIT NOW INDIANA to encourage healthy lifestyles for all members of our community with all Pride events being tobacco-free. For support and resources to quit tobacco, visit them at quitnowindiana.com or call 1-800-QUIT NOW
