Mission and History

Our mission at Iowa City Pride is to increase positive visibility of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual/agender/aromantic (LGBTQIAA) community of Iowa City, by providing opportunities to express and celebrate diverse perspectives, emphasizing acceptance of all individuals regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
Iowa City Pride coordinates an annual Pride festival and related events throughout the year. The Pride board meets the third Sunday of every month at 3 p.m. at rotating locations. Members of the public are welcome to attend. To inquire about attending the meeting, joining the pride board, or volunteering for Pride, email:
