About InterPride

About InterPride

InterPride is the international organization that advances the Pride movement by coordinating with global partners that share our values.

 

We are uniquely suited to carry out our work because InterPride:

 

  • Works with and supports the visibility and development of Pride networks around the world, thereby contributing to the presence and influence of Pride efforts at regional and local levels.

 

  • Gathers regional Pride platforms dedicated to producing Pride events for diverse global SOGIESC (Sexual Orientations, Gender Identities and Expressions, and Sex Characteristics) communities to learn and grow with each other.

 

  • Manages, supports, and awards WorldPride™, global grant programs, and related initiatives.

In 1982, the National Association of Lesbian and Gay Pride Coordinators was formed in Boston, USA, with an initial membership of six USA Pride organizers. Over time membership has grown to include Pride organizers around the world, becoming InterPride in 1999. In 2021, membership totaled over 300 organizations from more than 60 countries. This growth has been matched by increasing diversity of membership. Since 2015, non-North American members have grown from 21% to 49%. This trend primarily reflects increased participation from Oceania and Global South (Africa, Asia, and South America).

 

The Pride movement continues to evolve. Pride has gained a presence in locations where it was previously absent or under-developed. There has also been significant growth in structures that gather Pride organizers together at a national or international level (known as Pride Platforms). This trend has created opportunities for InterPride to identify ways to better leverage regional knowledge to advance the rights of SOGIESC communities.

Our Structure

Our Structure

InterPride is governed by a Board of Directors, which includes officers directly elected by the membership as well as regional representatives. Co-Chairs of Committees and Working Groups also participate in Board meetings to support information exchange and project coordination.

We also engage contractors and consultants in specific roles to support key functions.

InterPride owns and awards the license for the WorldPrideTM, the international flagship Pride event. These events are hosted by InterPride member organizations that are selected through a membership vote.

 

InterPride manages a range of projects, including PrideRadar, Racism Oppression and Awareness Program (ROAP), and InterPod; and works with partners on events such as Global Pride. We provide grants to Pride organizers and scholarships to members to attend our Annual General Meeting and World Conference (AGM & WC). The AGM & WC are hosted by member organizations selected through a membership vote.

Vision

 

InterPride’s mission is to achieve legal, social, and cultural equity for SOGIESC communities through the Pride movement.

 

Mission

 

To contribute to the visibility and inclusion of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) communities.

 

To connect, grow, and support Pride Platforms and networks globally

 

To assist the Pride movement to design and conduct human rights events that deconstruct myths, lies, and prejudices surrounding SOGIESC realities.

 

To maximize networking and communication across the global Pride movement, offer resources, grow, and leverage partnerships.

Pride

 

InterPride defines Pride as any public or semi-public gathering led by and for people of diverse SOGIESC communities that promotes visibility and inclusion.

 

Such gatherings take many forms, including but not limited to a parade, march, rally, festival, as well as events reflecting varying cultural practices such as pageants, traditional dance, ceremonies, and storytelling.

 

InterPride recognizes that the nature of Pride gatherings is influenced by political, social, and cultural contexts, including constraints imposed by at-risk environments.

 

A Pride organization produces a Pride event. An organization may be described as Pride-like where it does not produce a Pride event but aspires to do so. The inability to produce a Pride event may be due to factors such as the prohibition against public assembly, politically hostile environments, lack of funding, or organizational capacity.
