In the wake of a global pandemic, we found ourselves in the same position as many of the talented musicians with whom we work: facing the cancellation of an entire season of events. These include our San Francisco Pride float and marching armada, the annual Bluegrass Pride Celebration Concert (in San Francisco), our annual Portland Bluegrass Pride celebration, and the inaugural Nashville Bluegrass Pride celebration. These celebrations help us to grow our connections and create a deeper community with supporters like you, who live our mission every day. In order to save those connections and inspire new ones, we decided to bring the spirit of Bluegrass Pride right to your front porch.
Porch Pride: A Bluegrass Pride Queer-antine Festival is a digital festival featuring more than 10 hours of live music over the course of Pride weekend, June 27-28, 2020. Our purpose is to highlight and showcase LGBT+ roots musicians, while also generating financial support for them as they navigate the new non-existent performance landscape, all while providing a gathering space for our community during these isolating times. Our goal is to pay each of our artists at least $200 for their performances in our festival. Bluegrass Pride has already diverted all funds allocated for our annual parade and celebration concert in SF towards this event in pursuit of our goal. But we can’t do it alone.
