Capital City Pride is a 501c(3) organization that was founded to provide support to the LGBTQ+ community in Jackson, Mississippi through the implementation of events throughout the year, including a yearly Pride Celebration. Capital City Pride's mission is to create safe spaces for the LGBTQ+ community in Jackson, MS; while advocating for their needs and mentoring new emerging leaders.
Capital City Pride is made up by a 11 person Board. Its Members represent all sexual orientations, socioeconomic backgrounds, race, and age.
Each year its two day Pride Celebration will have a charity aspect, and the Committee will vote on a non profit who embodies the same beliefs of Capital City Pride, and ensures they are promoting the well being and health of our LGBTQ+ community. That non profit will benefit monetarily from events produced by Capital City Pride during the celebration.
Our mission is to provide safe spaces for the LGBTQ+ community while advocating for their needs and intentionally creating opportunities to mentor emerging leaders in the Jackson Metro area.
The Vision of Capital CIty Pride is to build a community of people with diverse gender identities and sexual orientations who are united, visible, and equal with all Mississippians.
