Middletown Pride is one of Connecticut’s largest pride events held in downtown Middletown, Connecticut each June.  We believe that pride is both a demonstration for, and a celebration of, our local LGBTQIA2S+ communities.  In furtherance of this goal, Middletown Pride creates safe and visible spaces in the City of Middletown by providing education and training for and about the LGBTQIA2S+ communities, and holds FREE pride events throughout the year.

Middletown Pride is a partnership between the City of Middletown, the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce, Wesleyan University, Middlesex Health and the Russell Library.  Middletown Pride also collaborates closely with the Triangle Community Center, located in Norwalk, CT.
