(EVENT page)

Detroit, MI – LGBT Detroit announced the opening of the planning process to the community in making the 22nd annual Hotter Than July a continued success. This year’s theme is “I AM BECAUSE WE ARE!” LGBT Detroit is furthering the conversation by inviting the community to better develop Hotter Than July.

“To strive to make this year’s celebration better, we are expanding community involvement,” said Curtis Lipscomb, executive director for LGBT Detroit. “Therefore, the input and resources of volunteers are a major impact to the success of the event.”

Come join us for the first meeting of 2017, taking place on January 25th at 6 p.m. at Community Health Awareness Group, located at 1300 W. Fort St, Detroit, MI 48226. We will listen to presentations, proposals, and ideas that will build the LGBTQA+ movement. Along, with these elements we seek the voices and skills from the community to make sure that Hotter Than July continues to be the hottest pride in America. Come show your pride throughout the year to create an experience of a lifetime.

“We pride ourselves on creating safe, brave spaces for our community members to be heard and visible,” said Charlie Dickerson, program coordinator for LGBT Detroit. “So grab your pen, paper, and resources, and be ready to share with us how you will support in making this July the hottest it’s ever been.”

We will see you on Wednesday, January 25th!
