On June 16, Portland Monthly kicked off Pride weekend with FLARE! Nearly 1,000 party-goers gathered at Zidell Yards to celebrate that love is love is love is love. Guests danced the night away to DJ Cazwell and JD Samson, enjoyed Portland Monthy's first fashion show featuring local designers Wildfang, Bryce Black, V, and Brady Lange, sipped specialty cocktails, and jumped into HappyMatic's glittering photo booth— all while supporting Portland's LGBTQ community and our nonprofit partners: Basic Rights Oregon, The Bus Project and Love Wins. FLARE was sponsored by Bank of America, Summit Mortgage, Jim Beam, Coors Light, Barefoot Bubbly, Adidas, KinkFM, Zidell Yards and HOTLips Pizza.
