Being a leader in the community starts with being of service.

Get connected to the LGBTQ community by joining the Pride family and help put on mission driven year-round events and programming including the San Diego Pride Parade and Festival. Every year, San Diego Pride relies on over 1000 volunteers to help us plan and execute the Pride Festival, events, and programs. With over 30 different volunteer departments, there is something for everyone, and we need your skills to execute our city’s largest LGBTQ event.

Please feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns!
