Support of Other Prides:
San Diego Pride recognizes the importance of the many Pride events that are held each year in San Diego. San Diego Pride has supported Ebony Pride, Latin Pride and North County Pride, not only by making donations to these organizations, but by sharing our experience and skills when needed.
Support of the LGBT Center:
San Diego LGBT Pride has had a long and rewarding relationship with The Center. Recognizing the importance of The Center to the entire LGBT community, San Diego Pride remains committed to supporting the ongoing efforts of The Center. San Diego Pride has donated over $625,000 to support The Center's vital services and programs.
Pride partnerships are formed with community organizations whose membership desire a larger participatory role in the Pride Weekend events. On a yearly basis, community partnerships receive $25,000 raised through ticket sales, water and coffee sales, and other festival activities.
When you participate in the annual San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Pride celebration, you are supporting many community organizations that are vital to the health and well-being of the entire LGBT community.
