Long Beach Pride’s Mission

To produce and support activities that educate, encourage and celebrate PRIDE, inclusion and respect for humanity.

About Long Beach Pride™

Long Beach Pride™, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is an all-volunteer organization that produces the annual three-day Long Beach Pride™ festival, parade and teen pride annually in July. The third largest Pride festival and parade in California, we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with a focus on inclusion, and work to educate the wider community that diversity builds a stronger and healthier society. Taking pride in what we have achieved since 1984, we strive to teach the future generations that the battle for acceptance continues.

SET A NEW STANDARD FOR PRIDE

This year will set a new standard for Long Beach Pride and become the gold standard for Pride festivals everywhere.

In the last decade, live events have entered a new sphere of rich, dynamic content. In order to tell our story in a way that honors the struggle, celebrates the community, and captivates new generations–while showcasing our history–we need to engage multiple audiences in multiple ways. So this year, in addition to the stages and musical entertainment, we’ll be creating multiple activations and attractions that will bring guests and sponsors together in an environment that entertains, educates and inspires.
