Walk in Your Power

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.

Strong in numbers and a fierce force fueled
by the Power of Pride

This year, Oakland Pride and Pridefest Oakland have joined forces to create a sponsorship of strength and respect while elevating our unified mission to celebrate and support the cultures and diversity of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer+ (LGBTQ+) community in Oakland and the surrounding Bay Area.


Both of these organizations have cemented their sponsorship to provide unified support for each other, the LGBTQ+ community, and Oakland at-large so that every marginalized voice can be heard.


Oakland Pride helps create a safe space to come home to. A sanctuary where you are protected, can be all you
are without judgment and are embraced by your chosen queer family that is strong in numbers and a fierce force
fueled by the Power of Pride.
