Each year pride events are held nationwide in cities large and small, and for some Americans, it is the only occasion where they can be out and proud in their community. Pride festivals and parades are a celebration of the progress the LGBTQ community has made, but also a time to recognize the distance we still have to go to achieve full equality.Read More About Pride

This year, we recognize the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the uprising which followed — marking the beginning of the fight for true equality. HRC members carry on that fight today — you are the people who give our movement power. This Pride season, we urge all members — allies and LGBTQ alike — to share your stories, be visible, and show your pride in how far the movement has come. Progress depends on the continued engagement of people like you!
HRC will be at over 250 Pride from coast to coast this year.
