Music builds bridges for the LGBTQ community!

Lakeside Pride is one of the most beloved LGBTQ music institutions in Chicagoland. As a non-profit, we work to strengthen the connection the LGBTQ community has to the City of Chicago, and beyond.

Through the generous financial support of individuals, companies, foundations, and government agencies, Lakeside Pride presents an annual season that features our jazz orchestra, marching band, chamber ensembles, and symphonic band. However, to continue presenting concerts and community events that bring people together, we need your support.

There are a number of ways you can influence our future, including individual contributions, sponsorship, and by volunteering your time. Think of this, and all future gifts to Lakeside Pride as an investment in the music you love and in the LGBTQ community.
