OKC’s Urban Pride: It’s a win-win

Urban Pride makes a difference in our community. Everyone is welcome to share a unique opportunity to connect with the LGBT+ community and show your support of an important cause: LGBT+ Unity & Inclusion.

“This event reaches different key audiences, through genres of music,” said Brandi Davis, Urban Pride Events Founder. “Feel good about supporting your local LGBT+ community, outreach, and cultural organizations as you enjoy an unforgettable night.”

The Urban Pride website will be live on June 1st at www.urbanprideevents.com.

The OKC nightlife is growing, Davis exclaimed. “We are creating a memorable, cause worthy experience here through Silent Unite.”

Silent Unite was formed when it’s founder experienced a “Silent Disco” as one of the late-night activities on a cruise. It was silly, it was weird, but he had so much fun that he wanted to do it again with his friends back home.

Upon arriving back to New York, he realized that no one was throwing these types of parties, so he launched Quiet Events Inc.

In 2012 with 350 brand new, 3-channel LED style headphones, the 1st “Quiet Clubbing” party drew out almost 200 people. It, however, took almost an hour before anyone danced on the dance floor.

Quiet Events Inc. now has offices all over North America with over 20,000 headphones. Whether the location is indoors or outdoors, “Silent” parties are a unique way to party, laugh, and even sing along.

Each attendee is registered online www.quietevents.com to check out the headphone unit; this allows Silent Unite to become more in-tune with its patrons and their needs.

Three different genre DJ’s will be live the entire night, a choice of any DJ with a touch of a button, located on the headset. Imagine listening to your favorite song at the same time the person across from you is on the blue station jamming to theirs.

Organizers say multiple portions of the proceeds will go to support LGBT+ causes and programs.
