Third Saturday

Due to the positive response to the first #VirtualAZPride on April 3-5, we are continuing in that spirit with our new Third Saturday program. On the Third Saturday of every month, we will bring you a curated selection of programming from partners old and new. Programming will be selected to represent the diversity of our community, mixing entertainment programming such as DJ sets and drag performances with education and advocacy and activism programs from our nonprofit partners, along with virtual meetups and children and family programming including more Drag Story Hours.

The first Third Saturday event will be happening on Saturday, May 16. Check out the lineup below!
