Gay Pride in Phoenix Arizona

Phoenix Pride promotes unity, visibility, and self-esteem among gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons; and promotes a positive image in the Valley of the Sun and throughout Arizona through community activities and services.

Phoenix Pride educates the metropolitan Phoenix community about LGBTQ persons and their families and celebrates their lives by producing an annual Gay Pride festival, parade and pageant, in addition to administering other educational and charitable programs serving the LGBTQ community.

THE HISTORY OF PHOENIX PRIDE

In 1981, a group of gay & lesbian activists organized the first Pride march thru the streets of downtown Phoenix to the state Capitol building. It was a politically focused march to bring awareness to gay rights issues in Phoenix.

Nearly ten years later, a group of volunteers joined together to coordinate the annual Pride festival. This committee, best known as the Phoenix Lesbian and Gay Pride Committee, Inc. helped establish a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization known today as Phoenix Pride.
