Celebrating Pride Month 2020
ICON’s commitment to inclusivity and acceptance extends across all races, religions, gender identities, and sexual orientations. We are proud to show our support of the LGBTQ community during Pride Month 2020!
The LGBTQ community has indelibly contributed to artistic culture, even more so to the culture of dance music, a genre many ICON alumni have helped shape since we opened our doors in 2005. The articles below provide further insight and education into those contributions along with our perspective to honor those contributions.
