El Paso Sun City Pride serves as our region’s largest recognized lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) organization. Initially founded over a decade ago, our mission has always been to increase the LGBT community’s visibility. In doing so, we have helped many individuals come to places of tolerance and acceptance. El Paso has long been a place ahead of it’s time. This community places love and support for one another above all else and we have been happy to model ourselves in those values. Over the past decade, Pridefest has expanded beyond a one day event to include a full WEEK of events around El Paso. These include family friendly events at the El Paso Zoo, scholarship presentations for local students, bar nights, the original street festival/parade, and much more. The week of pride events concludes with our PRIDE Festival in historic downtown El Paso following the annual PRIDE parade through the surrounding city. It is at these events that we are afforded the opportunity to show the world our true selves and the positive contributions the LGBT community brings to El Paso. We look forward to seeing you there.
