FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Indy Pride, Inc., Announces 2023 Parade Route, Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion in the Heart of Mass Avenue
Indianapolis, IN – March 14, 2023 – Indy Pride, Inc., the organization behind the annual Pride Festival and Parade, is thrilled to announce the official route for the 2023 Indy Pride Parade presented by Delta Faucet, happening on June 10th, 2023.
This year’s Indy Pride Parade presented by Delta Faucet will once again take place on the iconic Mass Avenue, a historical and cultural district in downtown Indianapolis known for its vibrant arts scene, eclectic restaurants, and unique boutiques. The selection of Mass Avenue as the parade route is particularly significant, as it is home to many LGBTQ+-owned businesses, and has long been a hub of LGBTQ+ life and activism in Indianapolis.
After careful consideration and multiple conversations with community members, stakeholders, and city leaders, Indy Pride has determined that Mass Avenue still needs to be the location to showcase the diverse and inclusive nature of the LGBTQ+ community in Indianapolis.
“We’re excited to continue celebrating our community’s history and progress on Mass Avenue, and to honor the activists and leaders who have paved the way for us to live our lives authentically,” said Shelly Snider, Executive Director of Indy Pride, Inc. “We know that Mass Avenue holds a special place in the hearts of many in the LGBTQ+ community, and we’re thrilled to keep the Pride Parade in this vibrant neighborhood.”
Indy Pride is committed to ensuring that the 2023 Indy Pride Parade presented by Delta Faucet is a safe and enjoyable event for all attendees. In order to make this a reality, Indy Pride is calling on the community, community partners, and volunteers to come together to support the parade and help ensure that everything runs smoothly.
“We can’t do this without the help of our community, partners, and volunteers,” Jenny Boyts, Board President of Indy Pride. “We’re asking everyone to step up and support us in whatever way they can – whether that’s through volunteering the day of the parade or donating.” You can register to volunteer by going to the following link bit.ly/VolunteerIndyPride
In addition to the parade, Indy Pride is also planning a full week of events to celebrate Pride Month in Indianapolis, including the annual Pride Festival, which will take place the same day as the parade and will be held at Military Park starting at 11:00 A.M.
The Indy Pride Parade presented by Delta Faucet is a time-honored tradition in Indianapolis, and the 2023 parade promises to be a celebration of diversity, inclusion, and love. Indy Pride is grateful to the community and city leaders for their support in making the decision to hold the parade on Mass Avenue, and looks forward to working together to make the 2023 Indy Pride Parade presented by Delta Faucet a success.
