You can join us.
Be a part of building a new Philly Pride, that centers Black and Brown queer and trans communities, and highlights the stories of LGBTQ+ Philadelphians still fighting for equality. We want to create a Pride that honors the origins of LGBTQ+ liberation, including the protests at Dewey’s in Philadelphia, Stonewall, and the first Philadelphia Gay Pride demonstration in 1972.
PHL Pride Collective was established in 2021 in the wake of Philly’s previous organization dissolving, and quickly embarked on a mission to reimagine what Pride festivities could be. This photo depicts some of our volunteer members at the first group retreat.
We envision year-round programming that celebrates Philly LGBTQ+ communities, and creates spaces for LGBTQ+ people to meet, engage in collective healing, educate each other, and support the well-being of our communities throughout Philadelphia. Please read our Points of Unity to find out more about what we stand for.
