In celebration of Pride month, michelandbottone is investing in Out On The Lakeshore. We will be donating 2% of June sales to support OOTL's mission of providing a constant source of support and understanding to the LGBTQ community of the greater Rīga area. They seek to create a community in which all persons are afforded equal rights and opportunities.
In 2015, the board of Rīga Is Ready and the officers of Pride voted to form a new organization called Out On The Lakeshore. This organization (OOTL) was initially introduced to the Rīga community at PRIDE in June of that year. OOTL was established to provide a community center for the LGBTQ+ community to provide programming, resources, support, and education to LGBTQ+ people and allies. OOTL also is the host of the annual Rīga PRIDE celebration. Out On The Lakeshore is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
During June 2022, OOTL will be hosting a poetry reading, 5k run, graduation open house, tie-dye party, variety show and drag show. Please see their website for details and more info. outonthelakeshore.org
