Evolve 'n Thrive Events is a nonprofit organization that hosts events for the LGBTQ community in the Southeast United States.
Our vision is to make the world a better place one event at a time.
Our mission is to provide fun and safe events for LGBTQ support, inspiration, and connection in the Southeastern United States, especially in small towns that may not offer access to LGBTQ resources.
Have you ever saw an event and thought, "I'd like to do that, but I don't know if I'll be accepted?"
Everyone's welcome at Evolve 'n Thrive Events.
We currently host an annual Gay...la Masquerade Ball in Pensacola, Florida.
We hope to continue to expand as we grow!
Allies welcome and encouraged to participate!
Founder & President
The annual Gay...la is our biggest fundraiser, and it's a night of fun, connection, and wonder! We also donate part of the proceeds to a local nonprofit that benefits the LGBTQ community. The rest of the proceeds go towards future events.
This is a night packed full of fun 'n entertainment, good eats 'n cocktails, and of course, a chance to dress up 'n be yourself!
