Music by DJ/Producer Charo Velecio. Dress code: Classic White. Pride in the Pines benefits an LGBT charity each year: in 2014, the Hetrick Martin Institute is the beneficiary. HMI helps LGBTQ youth to reach their full potential, especially at-risk youth and homeless young people: 40% of homeless youth are LGBT and 30% are thrown out of their homes after they come out. In 2013 over 75% of event proceeds benefited the designated charity. Men are welcome to attend this event.
