Mark your calendars for September 4 as Oakland Pride returns to the East Bay. Oakland Pride is one of the most diverse Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) celebrations in the country and the largest Pride event in the East Bay!
Celebrating and highlighting the wide range of our communities in a weekend full of fun, resources, entertainment, activism and engagement, Oakland Pride strives to create an environment where everyone can enjoy what makes us unique and what brings us together.
Oakland Pride is about Oakland, working on the great aspects of our City while giving a platform to get engaged and involved in our communities. It’s also about family, providing a safe and fun environment for families from all spectrums.
