The annual Great Lakes Bay Pride event takes place in Bay City this year.

The event, presented by Perceptions, shines a light on the LGBTQ community. It takes place from noon to 8 p.m. on July 23 at Veteran's Memorial Park.

It is a family friendly event that includes children's education and performances by local and national musicians.

Some of the performers include Harmony Diversity Choir, Steve Grand, Eryn Woofs, De'Borah and Avenue 5.

 “Our 2016 Great Lakes Bay Region Pride festivities have three simple goals,” said Christopher Lauckner, Chairperson of Perceptions.  “To lay a foundational legacy for a fully inclusive culture across the Great Lakes Bay Region; to bring unity to our diverse community through a celebration of life, equality and family – whatever your definition of family may be; and most importantly, to drive action as we continue to advance equal rights and acceptance for all – ensuring that our community and all its citizens can thrive and prosper in a growing, affirming community. There has never been a better time to get involved and make great things happen.”

TV5's David Custer is the master of ceremonies for the event.

Tickets cost $7.
