Although Sarasota has its main Pride event in October every year, that doesn’t mean the LGBTBQ+ community is waiting to celebrate Pride Month! This month there are a lot of fun events for the LGBTQ+ community at Oasis and Purple Rhino.

Oasis

As Sarasota’s premier LGBTQ+ bar and venue, they have a strong customer base that travels from all over Florida to enjoy a fun night under the bright lights and high energy music on any given day. They have a daily happy hour and events that please the whole crowd from Drag Shows and Live DJ’s to Sarasota’s sexiest male dancers on Friday Nights. Oasis is known for having a kind and generous staff including the GM Hunter Vance. If you’re looking for a wild night out don’t sweat about breaking the bank at Oasis as they are known for having strong and fairly priced drinks. Check out the listicle below for all of the Sarasota Pride events during June!

Purple Rhino Lodge

Purple Rhino is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide a place for fellowship in the LGBTQ+ community in Sarasota. They also work with Red Ribbon Services to help raise money for those living with HIV to make improve their quality of life. Purple Rhino Lodge is a private club for those who pay for an annual membership, for $60. They’re most well-known for their Drag shows on Saturday Nights and Sunday mornings. One review on their Facebook page explained, “My partner and I are from Connecticut and are visiting in Osprey for a few days. Saw the drag show last night and had a blast. Loved Gramma Pearl, thought Trixie had amazing moves and found Lindsay Carlton-Cline was absolutely charming and gorgeous.”

If partying just isn’t your thing, we understand and so does the LGBTQ+ Community of Sarasota. With fun events like bowling nights and a few different discussion groups, Sarasota is in full support of Pride. Check out this list of all the Pride Month celebrations in the SRQ!
