The LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada asks the public to "Get Centered" and unite for PRIDE Month, celebrated worldwide every June.

The Center will benefit from a series of events produced by community partners and take the lead on many others.

The hashtag #GetCentered and the tagline "Get Centered" are part of an awareness campaign developed by The Center to collaborate with local businesses and community partners.

Companies that would like to partner with The Center for PRIDE Month are asked to contact Jim McCoy at jmccoy@thecenterlv.org.

Things will kick off early on May 21, as FAABULOUS THE SHOW will benefit The Center with a portion of ticket sales donated to the nonprofit organization. The live singing drag extravaganza is at Notoriety at 450 E. Fremont (top floor of Neonopolis).

Celebrate Harvey Milk Day on May 22, at The Jolt Coffee Shop, located in the lobby of The Center, as they introduce their new homemade ice cream with a special flavor to celebrate Harvey Milk Day.

Harvey Milk was a visionary civil and human rights leader. He became one of the first openly gay elected officials in the United States when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977.

The Space and Mark Shunock of Marshun Entertainment partners with The Center to create the inaugural PRIDE MONTH KICK OFF with box office proceeds going directly to The Center.

Tickets range from $25-$50 and some events are free. For tickets, click here.
