Uptown Pride lineup announced

Annual block party is June 24

THE WEDGE — The lineup for this summer’s 7th annual Uptown Pride Block Party was announced May 17.

Scheduled performers include Maria Isa, Venus DeMars and All the Pretty Horses, Chastity Brown and Pennyroyal, among others. The free event runs 6 p.m.–10:30 p.m. June 24 at the intersection of West Lake Street and Bryant Avenue South.

One of the sponsors, Eureka Recycling, is aiming to make the block party a “zero waste event” by eliminating, reusing, recycling or composting any material from partygoers.

A chunk of the proceeds will benefit OutFront MN, a local organization dedicated to eliminating homophobia and promoting equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people.
