What Is Puzzle Pride Along?
Founded in 2020, as a way to brighten up the Instagram feed in a dark time, while also opening a safe space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Starting off with a goal of completing all of the Cobble Hill/Shelley Davies Rainbow Project within the month of June, aka Pride Month, and allow for people all over the world to puzzle together while being so isolated.
2021 Puzzle Pride Along was elevated with a huge set of giveaway prizes, all donated by amazing sponsors within the world of puzzles. Puzzlers from 17 different countries played along and won 14 fantastic prizes ranging from puzzles, gift cards, subscriptions, and puzzle tools.
2021 also brought a custom designed puzzle through MicroPuzzles, which a portion of the profits of sales were donated to The Trevor Project. Along with standalone donations from the puzzling community, approximately $500 was raised for The Trevor Project in June. MicroPuzzles has kept the puzzle on sale throughout the year, continuing donations with each sale.
In January 2022, Puzzle Pride Along was nominated for a Puzzle Pal's Choice Awards, in the Favorite Event of 2021 category, and made it through to the final round of voting.
