About Us

Homer Pride is a vibrant and inclusive volunteer lead organization composed of families, friends, neighbors, business owners, civic leaders, students, and more. We are dedicated to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion for the LGBTQ+ community and society as a whole, with a specific focus on uplifting and supporting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individuals and individuals of all abilities. As a local 501(c)3 nonprofit, we are driven by our passionate commitment to creating a world where every individual, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, racial background, or abilities, is embraced, celebrated, and treated with respect and equality.

Our mission is to cultivate an environment that fosters acceptance, understanding, and empowerment for all members of our diverse community. We recognize the unique challenges faced by BIPOC individuals and individuals with disabilities within the LGBTQ+ community and society at large. We are dedicated to addressing systemic inequities, promoting social justice, and creating accessible spaces and opportunities for all.

Through advocacy, education, and community engagement, we actively work towards dismantling barriers, eradicating discrimination, and amplifying the voices of those who have been marginalized. We prioritize creating inclusive spaces, providing resources, and supporting initiatives that uplift and center the experiences of BIPOC individuals and individuals of all abilities.

At Homer Pride, we firmly believe that true progress can only be achieved through unity and collective action. We organize a range of events, programs, and initiatives that promote inclusivity, raise awareness, and celebrate the rich diversity of our community. By providing safe spaces, resources, and support, we strive to ensure that all individuals, regardless of their background or abilities, can thrive and live authentically.

We invite you to join us on this important journey towards a more equitable and inclusive society. Whether you identify as LGBTQ+, BIPOC, an individual with disabilities, or an ally, your involvement and support are crucial in shaping a future where everyone can live with dignity, love without fear, and contribute their unique gifts to the world.

Together, let us build a community that embraces diversity, cherishes equality, and stands firmly against discrimination. Welcome to Homer Pride, where we celebrate and champion the beauty, worth, and experiences of every individual, regardless of their abilities or background.

Mission

Homer Pride is dedicated to fostering a sense of unity, empowerment, equity, diversity, and inclusion within the LGBTQ+ community. We are passionately committed to actively supporting, promoting, and collaborating with diverse community groups. Our mission is to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and represented. We strive to educate, raise awareness about significant issues, and joyously celebrate the ideals of equality, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Over the past three years, Homer Pride's mission has expanded to include our Liberation Celebrations, which honor the rich tapestry of identities within our community. We acknowledge the intersectionality between LGBTQ+ experiences and the commemoration of Juneteenth, alongside other marginalized communities. Recognizing the historical context of both struggles for liberation and equality, we understand that unity in diversity is essential for fostering solidarity and achieving social change. Through embracing shared experiences and common goals, we aim to build coalitions, amplify voices, and advocate for a more inclusive and equitable society where all individuals feel valued, respected, and empowered. At Homer Pride, we celebrate the journey towards freedom, equality, and justice, standing together in solidarity as we continue to strive for a brighter and more inclusive future for all.
