We S.E.E. You

We S.E.E. You

Same mission. Different look.

After more than 40 years of service to the Phoenix community, Phoenix Pride felt it was time to capture our evolution as an organization, from one that began as passionate advocates and has advanced to become the leading resource for the local LGBTQ+ community.

How You S.E.E. Us

We're focused on inclusion.

While our mission has never wavered, our look has evolved. After more than 40 years of advocacy in Phoenix, our new logo reflects the work we do to Support, Engage and Empower the LGBTQ+ community, aligns with the spirit of our S.E.E. campaign with its lens shape and incorporates the colors representing a rainbow of diverse identities in the progressive flag.

What do you S.E.E.?

We’re More Than An Unforgettable Party

We S.E.E. the future.

As a community, we’ve come a long way. And we know that progress has been hard fought. At Phoenix Pride, we also recognize that we still have more to accomplish. So we continue moving forward.

At Phoenix Pride, we:
Support. Engage. Empower.

It’s why we invest in philanthropy efforts that support those who need it.

It’s why we organize and host events to engage with our community and celebrate ourselves, our progress and our visibility.

It’s why we empower our community through programming designed to instill confidence and understanding. 

Phoenix Pride has distributed more than $1.2 million in grants and scholarships since the program’s inception in 2008.
