Pittsburgh Pride – Pittsburgh Pride is the premier LGBT community festival in Pennsylvania, featuring the Pride March, PrideFest and other events in June and is sponsored by the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh, PA; June 2-11, 2017
Originally incorporated on July 17, 1996, as a spin-off of the Lambda Foundation, the Delta Foundation was created as a non-profit organization for the purposes of uniting and fostering good fellowship and social interaction among LGBT residents in the metropolitan Pittsburgh area.
In 2006, a different group of interested LGBT business owners and citizens came together with the idea of energizing Pittsburgh’s social scene and helping the community financially. Three events were held that raised over $35,000 and after observing their success and desire to form their own non-profit organization, the founding members of the Delta Foundation offered to cede leadership of their organization to the new group.
The Delta Foundation produces events and supports projects that help make the Pittsburgh a vibrant and exciting city that is attractive to the LGBT community. These include Pittsburgh Pride, (PITTSBURGH)RED on World AIDS Day, a Memorial Day Picnic, various fundraising events, and our newest project, Equality Partners of Western Pennsylvania. We believe that collaboration is the key to our success and we pride ourselves on the relationships we have cultivated with organizations such as Visit Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, City of Pittsburgh, ACLU, Stonewall Democrats, Equality PA, Pennsylvania Diversity Network, Keystone Progress and others.
As Richard Florida stated in The Rise of the Creative Class, “the most successful regions welcome all kinds of people. The presence of an LGBT community in large numbers is an indicator of an underlying culture that is open-minded and diverse. People look for cities with lots of gay people when they are hunting for a place to live and work. The presence of gays signals an exciting place, where people can fit in and be themselves.“
Seasons of Pride is pleased to present the Gay Pride or LGBTQ Pride Calendar for 2017. You will find Gay Pride events, LGBT Film Festivals, and the Gay Travel Events like Gay Ski Weeks. We do our best to try and keep up with all the events, but sometimes we miss one or two.
