Pride 2020

This year, Virginia passed historic legislation banning discrimination against LGBTQ people, which will positively impact every LGBTQ individual and family in the Commonwealth.  Overall, more than a dozen bills were passed by the Virginia General Assembly this year in support of LGBTQ Equality.  It is time to celebrate our victories and show our pride in 2020!

From the April until October, the LGBTQ community will be celebrating this historic moment at all of the Pride Festivals happening across the Commonwealth. Equality Virginia will be there with you to help celebrate these successes by attending as many local Prides as we can!

See below to find a Pride celebration near you!  Come by and you might meet the team from Equality Virginia. We hope to see you there!

Can you help us staff the Pride in your community?  We need volunteers!   Please email and let us know the Pride where you can help:  [email protected]   Also email and let us know if we are missing a local Pride celebration.
