St. Paul Pride Festival works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law and in the hearts and minds of each other. We do this by producing a STP Pride Festival, LGBTQIA+ Pride event that inspires, educates, and celebrates our diverse community and world!

The Minneapolis People’s Pride intends to be a space for all queer folks to experience joy, eat food, trade art, and various other activities. Making space for and feeding queer joy is a radical act of resistance that both uplifts the queer community and resists white supremacist heteropatriarchy. We aim to create a space for rest, collaboration, and love, centering those most marginalized and affected by systemic xenophobia.
