PROUD Gallery & Bar

Problem: Ann Arbor lacks safe social spaces for the young adult members of its LGBTQ+ community.

Solution: Create a new LGBTQ+ social space geared towards younger LGBTQ+ community members in the university and Ann Arbor.

Prototype Summary: PROUD Bar & Gallery is dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community of Ann Arbor.  As the sister to Aut Bar, we will provide the same quality of experience to a younger demographic —  a safe space to socialize with community members and have fun with friends.  Additionally, our gallery and performance space will serve as a platform for LGBTQ+ artists to share their talents that may be otherwise unrecognized or underappreciated.
