Queer People of Color Mixer

The “Queer People of Color Mixer” is Worcester Pride’s first official PoC (People of Color) centered event! We’ll have music, food, beverages! The theme of the music will be “THROWBACK JAMS” so there will be a lot of 90’s and early 00’s hits!

Why host a PoC event? We want to increase the involvement of PoC in our LGBT events! So whether you’re Native American, Black/African-American, African, Hispanic/Latin, Asian (the list goes on) – Please know that you ARE part of our LGBT family. You are always welcome with us.

Event is non-discriminatory & Allies are welcomed.
