Northern Virginia Pride -
Mission:
NOVA Pride is a coalition-building organization with a mission to educate, advocate and celebrate in service of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) community of Northern Virginia; including the counties of Fairfax, Loudoun, Arlington, and Prince William as well as the City of Alexandria. We aren’t just festivals and flag-waving. We are a movement to create an infrastructure between county-based organizations, charities, pride organizations, social groups, and the community at-large; to educate the community about LGBTQ+ issues, including health and discrimination; advocate for LGBTQ+ equality; and celebrate diversity and individuality.
The Commonwealth of Virginia is a uniquely situated state, perched at the gateway to the south, and adjacent to our Nation’s Capital. Northern Virginia is one of the most diverse, resourceful, and talented areas in the world; labeled as the “Silicon Valley of the East” due to the high concentration of tech giants with a presence here, and home to many major non-partisan advocacy groups.
The NOVA Pride mission is not only a celebration of LGBTQ+ culture within the gay community, but also an effort to reach out and embrace our allies and the community-at-large, from youth issues (bullying, coming out) through elder issues and everything in between.Who We Are:
NOVA Pride’s Board and Volunteers are made up of a diverse group of adults who maintain a presence within Northern Virginia. We run the gamut of LGBTQ+ identification, with lesbians, gay men, bi/pansexuals, transgender individuals, queer folk and straight allies.
