Our Priorities

Build Strong Community Partnerships
Hampton Roads Pride connects LGBT youth, teens, adults, and families with their greatest resource: community โ€“ promoting a sense of belonging and enhancing physical, mental, and social well-being.

Increase Public Affirmation of LGBT People
Through advocacy, education, and community service, Hampton Roads Pride strives to improve public backing for key health, housing, and legal issues impacting LGBT individuals and families.

Inform Public Policy
Hampton Roads Pride works closely with governing leadership in the region to incorporate inclusive policies, enact laws ensuring equality protections for all, and support LGBT Liaison Officers as they advocate for community members.

Engage Our Community
Hampton Roads Pride events continue to draw ever-growing crowds while providing a home for the nurture and celebration of LGBT organizations, institutions, and culture.

Grow Leaders
Funding scholarships in support of the next generation of innovative LGBT leaders remains an annual budget priority for Hampton Roads Pride.
