Sponsorship Opportunities

We are proud to announce the 11th Annual New London Pride Festival themed “Love out Loud” at Ocean Beach Park on August 10, 2024. 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 2024 pride festival will be a chance for us to celebrate the families that belong to our community both biological and chosen. 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 2024, 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!
