the project

United Lynn Pride is a welcoming week of events to be held June 20-24, 2022 in Lynn, MA and curated to provide an environment we can celebrate and learn in. We strive to bring visibility to the greater Lynn LGBTQIA+ community by fostering inclusion, education, raising awareness, and honoring our diverse history and culture.

United Lynn Pride is organized by a small group of dedicated community members, artists, advocates, allies, leaders, and organizations. Our events include our annual Pride Flag Raising Ceremony, Rainbow Bridge Lighting, Paint Night, Panel Discussion, Youth Pride Event & more. We are proud to continue and build on past Lynn Pride celebrations, and are mindful that there is still much work to do in the movement for justice and equity.

why we're doing it

The City of Lynn is the 8th largest municipality in Massachusetts, with a great, and growing, LGBTQIA+ community. This community has long been unrecognized and seeking unity throughout the city. Following the past few years of isolation and distancing, we desire for the community to connect and find space for joy. The United Lynn Pride Team is focused on centering community, and we have worked passionately to organize these events as we strive to create a space where the community can celebrate, create long-term connections, and instill the support of the LGBTQIA+ community in Lynn, not just for this week, but for years to come.
