Despite our movement’s progress since our founding in 1985, LGBTQ+ people and their families - particularly LGBTQ+ people of color - continue to face substantial barriers. At Pride Foundation, we center racial equity in all we do, knowing that the struggles for LGBTQ+ equity and racial equity are fundamentally interconnected. Scholarship Search
