PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Pride Week is starting off with a benefit going on along the waterfront.

Portland Monthly's Flare PDX showcases fashion, music, food and more.

It is also a benefit for three nonprofits; Basic Rights Oregon, Love Wins and The Bus Project.

People who attended Thursday's event said they will also take the time to remember the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting.

"There's going to be a strong sense of community support. Different people rallying together to showcase their solidarity," said Kyle Rush with The Bus Project.

Flare PDX runs until midnight on Thursday.
