Happy Pride Month!
June is the month to show your Tempe PRIDE! Here's a list of ways you can express your PRIDE and have some fun in downtown Tempe in June.
TEMPE LOVE shirts & tanks!
Now through June 6th, you can purchase a TEMPE LOVE tee and help Tempe youth at the same time. Purchase a shirt and $5 of your purchase will go to Mulligan's Manor, a nonprofit serving LGBTQA youth right here in Tempe. Our goal is to sell 200 shirts, raising $1000 for them! Remaining proceeds help to fund our free community events.
Menu of Options
‘Tempe Love’ Men's Tank, Modern/Slim Fit (Black or White) - $30.00
‘Tempe Love’ Stickers 5pk. - $6.00
The pre-sale of these limited-run shirts will go through June 6, 2022.
Downtown Tempe Flies it's PRIDE
During the month of June, the lamp posts downtown will fly Progress Pride Flags. Designed in 2018 by Graphic designer Daniel Quasar, Quasar added a five-colored chevron to the classic Rainbow Flag to place a greater emphasis on “inclusion and progression.” Quasar’s Progress Pride Flag added five arrow-shaped lines to the six-colored Rainbow Flag, which is widely recognized as the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ+) community. The flag includes black and brown stripes to represent marginalized LGBTQ+ communities of color, along with the colors pink, light blue and white, which are used on the Transgender Pride Flag.
Keep a look out for volunteers handing out Rainbow Flowers on the streets of Downtown Tempe - all are accepted and loved here!
