About InterPride

 

InterPride brings together Pride organizations from around the world, as well as regional, national, and local Pride networks, therefore contributing to the global coordination of Pride efforts. We currently gather over 400 organizations from more than 70 countries.

To assist Pride organizers design and conduct the most important visibility event that deconstructs myths, lies, and prejudices surrounding LGBTIQ+ realities. InterPride promotes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex Pride, maximizes networking and communication among Pride Organizations, offers resources, empowers, and leverages education.

Member organizations usually meet in person every year during Regional Conferences and the General Meeting & World Conference (GM&WC). InterPride owns and awards the licence for the “WorldPride” brand, the international flagship Pride event. These events are hosted by an InterPride member organization who are confirmed through a membership vote.

InterPride defines Pride as the most visible LGBTIQ+ public event that can take place in a given city. It could be a parade, a march, a rally, or a festival, at least partially open to the general public, organized for and promoting the visibility of people identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, intersex, and other sexual or gender identities, and commemorating a historical event such as the Stonewall Uprising or another LGBTIQ+ milestone.

InterPride recognizes four levels of membership: full, associate, affiliate, and provisional membership. Click here to learn more about Membership

InterPride is wholly run by volunteers who are all delegates of full Member Pride organizations. Delegates serve as officers on the Board of Directors, regional representatives within the Global Advisory Council, and co-chairs of committees and working groups. External consultants are regularly contracted to assist the organization as needed. Learn more about InterPride’s structure.
