Ferndale Pride

Ferndale Pride is summer's first LGBTQAI festival in the state of Michigan. Free to the public, the event unites community and businesses for the biggest party of the year. Join us, this year, on June 3 to feel the love that is Ferndale Pride.

A general catchall bucket for our thoughts and comments on life. 

Dangerous Curves shows Ferndale Pride why their hips don't lie at the Dance Stage, sponsored by Arcadia Marketplace, from 3:45pm-4:15pm on Saturday, June 3rd!

DangerousCurves

Founded in 2008 by Adira Elham, Dangerous Curves was created as a means of generating a positive body image among dancers in the belly dance community. They strive to accept all dancers but focus on inclusion in plus sized belly dancers. The group is made up of a diverse group of dancers from around the world. Dangerous Curves created the very first Plus Sized Belly Dance Convention, working to create a sisterhood for all female dancers. Come see Dangerous Curves on the Dance Stage, sponsored by Arcadia Marketplace, from 3:45pm-4:15pm on Saturday, June 3rd!

Nwoye jams on the Main Stage, sponsored by MotorCity Casino Hotel, from 4:00pm-4:30pm at Ferndale Pride on Saturday, June 3rd!
Nwoye is a pop performer in search of a way to revolutionize the way people think about LGBTQ individuals. His love of performing stemmed from watching Britney Spears' "Toxic" and Beyonce's "Crazy in Love". Finding comfort in artists such as Madonna, he began to take his love of performing to the next level. He recorded his first song at 12, won his first talent show at 13, and released his first single at 21. His singles, "Swimming Pool" and "Strawberry Avenue", have given him the ability to go on a nationwide tour through New York City, California, Dallas, Las Vegas, Ferndale, Pontiac, and Detroit to promote his work. With his unique dance style and electrifying stage presence, this is a performer you won't want to miss. Come see Nwoye on the Main Stage, sponsored by MotorCity Casino Hotel, from 4:00pm-4:30pm on Saturday, June 3rd!
