The mission of Riverside LGBTQ+ Pride Inc is to inspire, educate, commemorate, celebrate and illuminate our diverse LGBTQIA2+ community Riverside, California and surrounding areas through public service and public events. In addition to an annual celebration of our community, Riverside LGBTQ+ Pride Inc. will serve those in need by connecting community members to resources that help them to thrive, educate others through programs that help them to grow, and events that commemorate and illuminate those who need help to shine.
We are a completely volunteer-directed organization. We are a registered Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation with the State of California, and federally registered 501(c)(3) public charity with IRS. Direct donations are tax deductible.

A New PRIDE Event
Our biggest project for 2022 is creating a unique and engaging PRIDE event for the Inland Empire – Riverside's Inland Empire Pride will be in Downtown Riverside on September 4th, 2022 – Labor Day Weekend!
Safe Spaces & Social Community
We're creating events and safe spaces for the community to come together and socialize. This also includes a Health & Wellness initiative to create LGBTQIA+ friendly health and fitness opportunities. Check out our events calendar for examples of what we do on a regular basis!
Support For Our Neighbors & Community
We've been working on a network of community organizations and a platform to direct those in need to life-changing resources. Eventually, we want to be an organization known to have answers when people need them most. Our non-profit peers are also supported by Riverside LGBTQ+ Pride – We have started the Inland Empire LGBTQ+ Organization Alliance (IELOA) which is a group meant to boost the signal for our community's non-profit organizations.
We've been working to organize our volunteers for community service events in our community.
What's Around The Corner?
We're working on several programs for our future too! Some of the things we've got in the works include youth outreach programs, LGBTQ+ business support programs, artistic projects that improve the visibility of real LGBTQ+ community members, more programs to support our non-profit community and lot's more.
