East Central Minnesota lies between the State’s two-largest metropolitan areas, the Twin Cities and Duluth-Superior, Wis. Yet it is quite rural. Despite being rural, there is a growing LGBT community here. The following counties are located in the region: Chisago County, Isanti County, Kanabec County, Mille Lacs County, and Pine County. East Central Minnesota Pride attracts attendees from these places and beyond. Many folks from Northwestern Wisconsin (places like Frederic, Grantsburg, Luck, Siren and Webster) attend this pride too! Everyone is welcome.
