Join us this Pride to say loud and proud: Climbing is for EVERYONE!
We’re celebrating the LGBTQIA+ folx in our community for the whole month of June and beyond!
You can join us by snagging Touchstone Pride stickers ($2) and shirts ($25) at your fav Touchstone gym and online, grabbing our latest beer release (“Take Pride” hazy IPA) at our brewery, or by attending one of our Pride parties in Nor Cal and So Cal.
100% of proceeds from merchandise and ticket sales will be donated to California organizations that provide resources for our LGBTQIA+ community. Stop by the front desk to grab Pride merch and learn about the organization your gym is supporting!
In Oakland, we’re celebrating Pride with our Pacific Pride After Dark Party at Pacific Pipe on Saturday, June 17th, from 7:30pm – 12am. Join your Bay Area LGBTQ+ and allies community for a drag show, costume competition, live DJs, speed dating, dancing, food, drinks, raffles, and more.
In Pasadena, we’re joining Wondery and Chaco to host a Climb with Pride Party at The Post on June 3, from 5:30pm – 9pm. Join your LA area LGBTQ+ and allies community for food, climbing and adventure challenges, climbing clinics, a marketplace of LGBTQ+-owned businesses, a raffle, and more.
All proceeds will be donated to Queer Crush Climbing.
Keep the LGBTQ+ party going all year round and join a monthly Queer Crush meetup at your Touchstone gym! Queer Crush is a monthly meetup where queer, trans, genderfluid, and nonbinary climbers can crush climbs and make friends.
