InterPride is the international organization that advances the Pride movement by coordinating with global partners that share our values.
We are uniquely suited to carry out our work because InterPride:
- Works with and supports the visibility and development of Pride networks around the world, thereby contributing to the presence and influence of Pride efforts at regional and local levels.
- Supports the production of Pride events for the global SOGIESC community.
- Manages, supports, and awards WorldPride™, global grant programs, and related initiatives.
Founded in 1982, InterPride is a not-for-profit membership-based organization with more than 300 members from over 60 countries. Sources of income include membership dues, licensing fees, sponsorships, donations, and merchandise sales.
We partner with other international, regional, and national LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual+) associations and human rights organizations to facilitate social change for LGBTQIA+ people around the world. Each year, InterPride, its partners, and its members engage millions of people through in-person and virtual events, mainstream media, and social media.
InterPride is committed to supporting the evolving needs of our LGBTQIA+ community. The Pam O'Brian Memorial Scholarship Fund provides grants to InterPride Member Pride organizations so that they can attend the Annual General Meeting [&] World Conference (GM[&]WC), with a focus on Global South and Eastern Europe, where public LGBTQIA+ activities often face opposition or hostility. The grant can only be used to pay for conference registration, accommodations, meals, and transportation. The funds are voluntarily donated by our member organizations and sponsors.
