The first Gaylabration was launched in 2011, following the passage of marriage equality legislation in New York, as a way to celebrate love and community. While the United States continued to deny same-sex couples in Oregon and throughout the nation the right to wed, our community chose to unite in support of marriage equality. Now, with LGBT rights an ever-growing issue we unite once again in celebration and support. Gaylabration has also evolved to become the featured Saturday night dance party of Pride weekend and therefore expanded its mission to include enhancing the dance music scene in Portland by bringing in premier DJs and production.
