We’re glad you found your way to us. CivicPRIDE was created to serve as the umbrella organization to support local and statewide organizations that advance lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals in local government leadership. We want to increase the number of LGBT people serving at the most senior and executive levels in all areas of local government — administration, public works, police, fire, planning and others. We also serve as a professional support network of LGBT leaders and their straight allies that are already leaders in government who volunteer their time to speak on issues of equality within our profession. Our goal is to inspire action, and build bridges of opportunity for everyone in government.
To join us in our efforts is FREE! All we ask of you in return is to pay it forward in some way. Share your ideas, tell us about learning opportunities in your area, write an article for our blog post, help us tweet information, mentor others, and so on. We need you to grow our network of LGBT government employees and their allies! CivicPRIDE is open to anyone – including straight allies - who are supportive of LGBT leaders in government. We welcome everyone.
CivicPRIDE is a social and networking organization for LGBT government professionals and their straight allies that supports local and statewide organizations that advance LGBT individuals in government leadership. Together, we Support, Mentor, and Educate by:
