This month’s SSOM celebrates all things pride with “Pride on Main.” Watch dudes in high heels bolt down Main at the DragÂ Races or watch leather-clad ladies scoot their way to the finish lineÂ at theÂ Tryke Races.
Pride on Main is presented by Below Zero Lounge.Â All proceeds from the Drag Races and Tryke Races benefit Pride 2015. Tips from the Cincinnati Sports Leagues Beer GardenÂ will be donated to Caracole, ourÂ beer ambassadors in July.
SSOM runs 12-5 PM in historic Over-The-Rhine and is always free and open to the public.
Take aÂ look at what you can expect this Sunday (and join our official FacebookÂ event for updates).
