The Board of San Diego LGBT Pride is continuing a dialogue with the community through public comment at the monthly meetings. Additionally, meetings have been held between board members and key members of the community.

Minutes of Board meetings have been updated and posted on the Pride website. The server has been down, but is now operational.

The board, staff, volunteers, and community partners are developing plans for Pride 2017 and continuing Pride’s year-round programming, including the Pride Youth Leadership Academy, the Vote with Pride get-out-the-vote effort with The Center, and the Pride Youth Lunch Bunch with the Trevor Project. Work has begun on the partnership projects Out at the Park with the Padres, Out at the Fair, and SheFest. Production meetings for Pride 2017 have begun. 2016 Pride Community Grant applications are open.

Applications for the board of directors are encouraged and always welcome. The form is available on the website. Information for volunteer positions is also available on the website.


About San Diego Pride

San Diego Pride raises funds primarily through festival ticket and beverage sales, and through sponsorships, and exhibitor fees. These funds support San Diego Pride’s community philanthropy which has distributed more than $2.5 million in advancement of its mission to foster pride, equality, and respect for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities locally, nationally, and globally.
