Lake Tahoe Pride

About us                                               


Tahoe Pride is a safe, welcoming group for LGBTQ+ people and their friends. Our group is focused on building a strong community and forming lasting friendships. We organize a variety of social, cultural and outdoor activities where we promote equality and respect toward each other. Our mainstay is the monthly mixer, held every second Tuesday (rain, snow or shine) at various local eating and drinking establishments.

 

We are committed to diversity and are open to all: men and women; cis gender and transgender; binary and non-binary; straight and gay; couples and singles. Tahoe Pride and its friends care strongly about equal rights and acceptance for all. We strive to foster education and communication within our community, and we also seek to be active and visible in the larger Tahoe area. 

 

In 2013 Tahoe Pride introduced the Lake Tahoe Pride Equality Scholarship to continuing students at Lake Tahoe Community College.  This scholarship is intended to promote equality and to give back to our community. Each year we've been able to award $500 scholarships to two deserving students. We collect donations at our monthly mixers, and also encourage tax-deductible direct donations.
