The City of Middletown, the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce, and Wesleyan University—in collaboration with the Triangle Community Center—are again partnering together to raise awareness, celebrate, benefit and empower our diverse community and particularly the lives and contributions of our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual residents.
