Sponsorship Opportunities

We are proud to announce the 10th Annual New London Pride Festival themed “Ten years of pride, love makes a family” at Ocean Beach Park on August 12, 2023. In addition to the pride festival, this year OutCT is collaborating with local businesses and community partners to create a week of festivities in Southeastern, CT. 

You can be part of our pride week by becoming a sponsor in support of LGBTQ+ awareness and our mission: “OutCT is committed to creating a network of people, programs and experiences that celebrate our growing understanding of sexual and gender identities in Southeastern Connecticut.”


Sponsorship packages offer a wide range of opportunities for your support and participation. The 2023 pride festival will be a chance for us to celebrate the families that belong to our community both biological and chosen. This year’s Pride festival will be back to a fully in-person
event. Our event will include activities and entertainment for all ages with local performers, activations, musicians, vendors, resource booths, and the Youth Center all coming together in a celebration of pride. It is a time to celebrate us, the people we are, and the people we love.

Sponsor Levels

Sponsorship at all levels establishes you not only as a sponsor of both OutCT and New London  Pride 2023, but as a supporter of the LGBTQ+ community. OutCT provides high profile visibility and access to thousands of members of our community in a variety of ways. Since 2013, OutCT’s name and marketing efforts have grown significantly. New London Pride festivals have boasted attendance  numbers of 2000+. We expect the reach of our virtual and inperson events to continue to grow year over year!
