Partner

As Pride in the CLE® continues to grow, so does the challenge to ensure we provide our community with the most robust and memorable event, matching the amazing communal spirit of Pride. With this in mind, we seek to engage our community leaders in business to form mutually beneficial partnerships to help support this event.

Over 15,000 marched in unison through the streets of Downtown Cleveland last year, flowing into the joyous festivities at Malls B & C. We are proud to share that we will once again be returning to the Malls with hopes to expand on the success of this event. As our team of dedicated staff team up with an experienced, queer-led event planning firm, Palmer Event Solutions, Pride in the CLE® is poised to continue growing and empowering our collective queer voice.

In 2022, we saw an inspiring turn of support from our friends in business that helped pave the way to seeing one of the largest and expansive Prides to hit the shores of Lake Erie in recent memory. And so, we once again humbly ask that you consider joining us as partners in another exciting year of advocacy, support, education and, of course, celebration.

Together we can ensure that our voices are heard. That our love is emboldened. That justice for all is certain. Together, we can find power in Pride!

Why Partner?

Partnering with Pride in the CLE® goes beyond the direct fiscal support of the event. Endearing your organization to Pride helps spread a message of inclusivity and diversity to the community, both internally and externally. Current employees will find a heightened sense of pride in their work while a the same time those seeking safe, affirming spaces for work will know that your organization is committed to creating equal opportunities for all.

Pride also speaks to your organization’s continued commitment to social justice, that all are welcome to seek their own pursuit of success while celebrating their individuality. Being able to march under or see your company’s name listed as a partner send that ultimate message and allows real growth here in our Cleveland community, creating a more harmonious and unified place to call home.

In 2022, we saw a groundswell of harmful attitudes that sought to prohibit fundamental human rights, let alone the advancement of LGBTQ+ individuals across the country. It is our hope that you and your team join us to combat those growing voices of opposition, to stand as one and collectively “SAY GAY,” and to once again march for love and justice at Pride in the CLE®.
