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. TheSolidarity Fund provides grants to LGBTQIA+ Pride or Pride-like organizations around the world for community-based Pride events, with a focus on Global South and Eastern Europe, where public LGBTQIA+ activities often face opposition or hostility. Grants are not awarded to individuals. Click here to see our Solidarity Fund reports.
InterPride is creating the world's largest self-sustaining fund for LGBTI+ equality, inspired by the audacious ambition of the Pride movements. We combine equity-lens investing, daring grassroots fundraising, and robust and multi-sector philanthropy to unleash substantial resources for Pride organizers throughout the world through our Solidarity Fund.
Since its beginning in 2013, monies have been awarded to support the staging of an LGBTI+ film festival, a large-scale LGBTI+ wedding, and the first public Pride festivities in Jinja, Uganda, and Nassau, The Bahamas.
Our community needs you to join in the fight for global LGBTI+ equality. Invest in our community today, and together, we will achieve a more equitable future.
