To Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Pride means:
- Radical Joy
- Resistance Through Existence
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh celebrates Pride 2023 with a focus on Radical Joy and Resistance. We are celebrating LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual and more) individuals of all races, genders, classes, sexualities, and identities. Existing as a queer person brings many challenges, especially for people with intersecting identities. In 2023, we want to celebrate joy, love, and solidarity while still recognizing the oppression this community faces.
Pride + Joy = Resistance

Renaissance City Choir’s programming blends challenging contemporary music, commissions of new works, an ambitious traditional repertoire, and music from various world cultures. Join us for a performance of music that celebrates pride month and uplifts the LGBTQIA+ community.
RCC is western Pennsylvania’s only LGBTQIA+ and allies choral group. We strive to promote a positive image of the LGBTQIA+ community and to be a leading contributor to the cultural life of the tri-state area. We seek to build bridges both within the LGBTQIA+ community, the music community, and with the community at large.

We’ll be tabling with other organizations to show our support for the LGBTQ+ community, marching in the parade, signing visitors up for Summer Reading and hosting other fun activities all weekend long. We hope to see you there!
