All money raised at Tampa Museum of Art's Pride & Passion 2021 benefits the LGBTQIA+ community.

The 15th annual Pride and Passion—one of Tampa Bay’s most stylish fundraising events—is happening Saturday, Aug. 28 at the Tampa Museum of Art, after taking a break in 2020. The theme is “Neon Jungle” so get dressed in your “finest tropical resort chic with pops of neon and inspired by the animal within.”

If you need inspiration for your outfit, check out the event’s Pinterest page, but remember that buying a ticket means you agree to be photographed and filmed, so you’re going to want to look your best.

All money raised benefits the LGBTQIA+ community and this year, the event has partnered with nonprofit Metro Health to provide programs focusing on queer youth. 

The 21-and-up party costs $90 for members, $100 for non-members and $125 for tickets purchased at the door—they all include an open bar,  hors d’oeuvres and dessert.

For tickets or more information, go to tampamuseum.org.
