Phoenix Pride, founded in 1981, was established primarily for charitable, educational and social purposes. The main purpose of Phoenix Pride is to promote unity, visibility, and self-esteem among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer persons; and to promote a positive image in the Valley of the Sun and throughout Arizona through community activities and services. Phoenix Pride

The Phoenix Pride Parade brings the diverse LGBTQ+ and allied communities together for a weekend of camaraderie and celebration of the past, present, and future. The Parade brings over 2,000 individual participants with decorated vehicles, colorful floats and thousands of walkers. With over 15,000 spectators, the Parade featured local luminaries, music, and a greater sense of community.
