  • Focusing on the achievements of our community both in Oakland and across the country, 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. We work to emphasize on the great aspects of our City while giving a platform to get engaged and involved in our communities.
  • Oakland Pride is about family. We are proud of our Children's Area, which provides a safe and fun environment for families from all spectrums.

  • No other outlet in the East Bay will allow your business to reach thousands of LGBTQ individuals and families with the same reach and effect that Oakland Pride will.

THE OAKLAND LGBTQ COMMUNITY

  • Oakland is home to the 3rd largest LGBTQ community in the country, with the highest concentration of Lesbian households per capita.
  • Showing your support for Oakland Pride sends the message that you stand with our LGBTQ community and tells our community that we can take pride in your business.
  • According to Harns/Witeck-Combs, 72% of Gays and Lesbians prefer to buy from companies that advertise to them directly and the median household income of Gay couples is nearly 60% higher than non-gay couples.
  • Oakland's diverse communities celebrate difference and embrace culture, together with Oakland Pride, we can foster a relationship that encourages and supports that celebration.
