Over the last two summers, the Bozeman community has hosted The Montana Pride Celebration, producing significant growth of support and visibility for the LGBT community from the yearly events comprising the celebration. The success and notoriety of these events made significant strides in uniting and inciting the base of allies and supporters for these causes.

In 2011, the Bozeman Celebration garnered attendance well over 2,000, which more than doubled in 2012 with upwards of 5,100 attending between downtown and Montana State University events. Out of state attendance showed dynamic growth and the overall feedback from these events showed a majority of positive feedback from sponsors and attendees.

In 2013, Bozeman will be hosting it’s first year of INTERCHANGE: An annual festival celebrating strides in human rights, equality, and the continuing dialogue on a number of important issues. INTERCHANGE will annually evolve as we do, integrating awareness and giving a voice to a number of innovative topics, whether scientific, creative, national performing artists or otherwise so long as they support the evolution and improvement of the causes essential to the spirit of the event.

INTERCHANGE includes several pivotal individuals that assisted in planning the 2011 and 2012 Pride celebrations. This group, under the direction of Tate Chamberlin from Chamberlin Productions will be the beginning core of INTERCHANGE. Our fiscal sponsor will be TAP-365, a non- profit from Billings, Montana. Our main objective is to sustain the festival as a platform for equality, human rights and changes in human dynamics as we head into the future.

What We Need & What You Get

Our goal is $60,000. Even with such an ambitious goal every dollar counts. We are offering a variety of rewards, including tickets and VIP passes for Interchange. This is social enterprise, we will put your backing toward advertising, entertainment, branding, and education and outreach panels for the festival. Panels cover topics such as Racism, Human Trafficking Christianity and Sexuality.The funds will go towards developing the festival and building sustainability.

The Impact

As we stand together and fight for equal rights, we look to one another for strength, support and power in numbers. Now as the tide turns our way, there is no turning back the power of history. With love and tears for all those who have suffered before us just wanting to be treated equal.  

Listen closely. You are not sick, you are not a criminal. You are human, you are loved. You are not lambs- you are lions. It's time to solve this. No more apologizing, no more hiding between pride and shame. We have to change us.

Risks and challenges

Creating a sustainable festival is tough business. Overcoming obstacles and problem solving is something we thrive on and is part of our day to day. We have developed a way by challenging social issues and giving insight to different cultures through music, education and the human experience.
