Past Pride Events

– June 4 – 

Can’t Cancel Pride 2021 | 8pm Central | Virtual Event

The Montrose Center will be a beneficiary of this year’s “Can’t Cancel Pride,” hosted by CenterLink LGBT Centers and presented by P&G and iHeartMedia.
 
In 2020, “Can’t Cancel Pride” raised over $4 million to benefit the LGBTQ+ communities most impacted by COVID-19. This year’s event has a goal to raise even more as the pandemic continues to have a damaging effect on the fundraising efforts that LGBTQ+ organizations rely on to survive. 
 
We hope you’ll take advantage of this wonderful opportunity and join us as we bring global awareness to the critical work our Centers do each and every day.
