Celebrate Pride With Us: Without Exception!

Pride is a joyful celebration of all of the beautiful identities of our LGBTQ+ community. We create spaces where we can bring our whole selves to dance and march in the streets and declare: We are here. We are visible. We are proud!

But this is also a moment of crisis for our country and our community. Lives are literally on the line. Too many people — trans people, Black and Brown people, people living with HIV & AIDS, people being denied basic care — are facing unprecedented attacks. And still, we rise up and fight back.

Never forget that Pride was inspired by the Stonewall riots. At Stonewall, we stood our ground. Today, we are still fighting and will do so until we have freedom without exception, liberation without exception, joy without exception and pride without exception. Join us!

Support Your Local Affinity Prides!

Affinity Prides are celebrations centered around the experiences of intersectional identities within the LGBTQ+ community. Events such as Black Prides, Latine Prides, Trans Prides, and more, are important for providing a space intended to celebrate the specific progress of these communities and for sharing solidarity with those who face similar barriers and experiences at an intersection of multiple marginalized identities.

We encourage all to support these Prides as well, uplift those spaces, share the events, and contribute to the community based organizations and nonprofits who do the good work towards helping make these spaces exist for us.


It’s empowering to see when LGBTQ+ communities continue to thrive, spread joy and support queer spaces across the country. Watch how we are all coming together #WithoutException and join in by using our hashtag on social media platforms.
