Indy Pride Parade and Festival

  • Military Park 601 West New York Street Indianapolis, IN, 46202 United States (map)

Join the Episcopal Dioceses of Indianapolis and Northern Indiana as we celebrate our LGBTQ+ clergy and parishioners as well as share God's love with the broader LGBTQ+ community!

People come from all across the state to participate in Indy Pride. This is a great opportunity to show the LGBTQ+ community that there are welcoming Episcopal churches in their local communities. Last year, more than 50 people from the Diocese of Indianapolis participated in the parade and volunteered at the festival. This year, the Dioceses of Northern Indiana and Indianapolis are coming together to more fully represent the many Hoosier communities where we strive to make manifest Christ’s love for all.

All participants are requested to wear the EDNIN Indy Pride 2019 t-shirt. Order for $20 ($5 benefits Trinity Haven.) Clergy are requested to wear a collar underneath their t-shirt and a stole.
