Visitor Information Tampa Pride 2018

Thanks to everyone in the community and to our sponsors for making Tampa Pride 2017 a huge success. We look forward to seeing you next march for Tampa Pride 2018!

With another year of marriage equality in the books, we have plenty to celebrate. But there’s also much work to be done in light of recent election results. Our community is under attack across the nation. Now isn’t the time to be complacent. From fighting housing discrimination to fighting job discrimination to fighting attempts to legalize discrimination across the board under the misnomer of religious freedom: we can’t let up. We must capitalize on our gains, while helping GLBTA youth who have been abandoned on the street and helping discrimination victims wherever they exist.

In 2018 we’ll be one of the first Pride celebrations in the United States! Stay tuned to our website, Facebook page and Twitter feed to get all the information you’ll need to celebrate #TampaPride2018. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

Donation Tampa Pride 2018

Tampa Pride is a celebration of all of the obstacles our community has overcome throughout our history. It is our chance to celebrate being free of persecution, persecution that still plagues GLBTA people all around the world. While we all like the event, it’s costly to make it special! That’s where you come in. Make your tax deductible donation today, and ensure Tampa Pride continues for many years to come.
