Participate at Oakland Pride

Join in solidarity and celebrate loudly and proudly in community. From parading to volunteering, here are all the ways you can participate! There's no wrong way to celebrate - just find what makes you feel proud and happy, and go do it! 


Help Fuel the Power of Pride

Everyone deserves to walk in their power, not go it alone, and live authentically. The recent political attacks aimed at gay, transgender, and non-binary people threaten the rights of LGBTQ+ Americans and the fundamental promises of freedom, liberty, and dignity. But together, we can be a fierce force in creating safe, inclusive spaces that help amplify marginalized voices and broaden acceptance. Sponsors and donors not only cover our operating costs that fuel our events but also provide support for the Oakland LBGTQ+ Community and other essential services to Queer and POC community partners. Oakland Pride is a beacon to celebrate living life to the fullest and give hope to those who seek a community of belonging. Show your support for the community and stand in solidarity with us as we celebrate loudly and proudly.


Float and Strut in the Parade​​

Let’s go back to our roots and march in the parade, showing pride and joy for ourselves, our lives, and our amazingly resilient community!


This is the perfect opportunity to not only celebrate who we are but also for us all to come together as a strong united force. So what are you waiting for? Let’s strut those rainbow colored feathers with miles of smiles.
