The event is free and open to all; food and beverages will be provided.

This event continues our 15th Anniversary celebration festivities; additional events are in the works to close out the year, including our annual wine tasting in November.
Third beer tasting a success
The New Haven Pride Center would like to thank all of our attendees to the third Beer Tasting at the Savin Rock Conference Center on August 1. We had a great group turn out to sample some fantastic brews from three local distributors while enjoying the views of the ocean. Also to accompany the libations was a spread of delicious cheeses and breads. We capped off the night by raffling off some excellent gift bags, and congratulations to all the winners! Check out a few shots taken from the beer tasting in the photo gallery at right.
GLANCE celebrates New York Pride
The GLANCE group took its annual trip into New York City for pride in June, with a group of almost 20 people converging for the annual festivities, which included celebrating the recent decision to allow same-sex marriages in the state. GLANCE continues to meet Mondays, 8-11 p.m. at the Center; upcoming events include a visit to the group from the Yale Swing & Blues Group on Monday, Sept. 5.
Thank you for your Dorothy Awards nominations!
The Center thanks those who submitted candidates for Dorothy Awards via our public nomination process.

Scholarship winner to be announced shortly
The Pride Center is pleased to be able to announce our first ever scholarship winner shortly; a separate article will appear on the New Haven Pride Center website with the news.
Imperial Court continues campaign with Center
The Imperial Sovereign Court of All Connecticut earlier this year named the New Haven Pride Center one of its beneficiaries for its 2011-2012 court window. As such, many major events the Court is holding this year also serves as a benefit that helps raise money for the Center, along with two other worthy causes, the Triangle Community Center and the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective. Keep an eye on our calendar of events for upcoming Court events!
