About Responders for PRIDE
Responders for PRIDE is working to fulfill our mission of equality, education, and support of our first responder LGBTQ+ community through visibility, fundraising, scholarships, and awareness.
The first responder community deserves to be a place for everyone to be their authentic selves while serving the community at large.
Responders for PRIDE envision a world where the first responder community views and accepts LGBTQ+ persons as equals. They are valued as their authentic selves.
