Pride 2019

June is National LGBT Pride Month. However, in Virginia, our Pride runs deep! Beginning in April, festivals happen across the region and occur throughout the fall. Equality Virginia hits the road hard, attending as many local Prides as we can to spread the word about ways we can work together to protect Virginia’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals and families.

Find a Pride near you and see where you can meet the EV team this summer and fall!  We hope to see you there!

Want to volunteer? See a missing event?  Help Equality Virginia staff a Pride in your community.  If you are interested, email us at [email protected] to let us know what Pride you can help with!
