On July 3-5, Lighthouse Foundation will host a virtual Black Queer Pride in celebration of the organization's first-year anniversary.
The organization aims to advance justice for Black LGBTQ+ people across Chicagoland through entrepreneurship, empowerment, education and entertainment.
During the three-day virtual event, the Foundation will highlight a cross section of Black LGBTQ+ performers, celebrities, speakers and presenters. Segments will include entertainment such as drag performances, dance parties and concerts; there will also be info sessions and tutorials from Black queer professionals. Comedian Sampson McCormick will bring greetings, and his comedy show, Church Boy, will air during the event.
