who we are and what we do
Queen City Pride celebrates, unifies and fortifies the LGBTQ+ community of New Hampshire.
At Queen City Pride, we promote the equity, inclusion and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community and allies, and strive to provide a sense of community and general acceptance, as defined by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer population – individually and as a group. To that end, we encourage the creation of safe, inclusive environmental centering healthy and equitable relationships between the LGBTQ+ community and allies.
Queen City Pride values the dignity and worth of all people and works to create and maintain institutions which fully realize this value. We value and celebrate the rich cultural and historical heritage of the LGBTQ+ community. It is our belief that promoting, celebrating and achieving inclusion, diversity and equity is key to the mission and vision of Queen City Pride.
