Stonewall Chico Pride is planned by a team of around 20 volunteers, chaired by Stonewall's Event Coordinator, and hosted by Stonewall Alliance- Chico's nonprofit LGBTQIA2S+ center. Our committee is comprised of staff, board members and interns from Stonewall, representatives from allied organizations, and community volunteers. If you are interested in being part of the planning process, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
Stonewall Chico Pride 2019's theme is Stay Gold. This reflects the 50th (Golden) anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which centered around New York's Stonewall Inn during June of 1969. This was an iconic uprising of queer and trans* people against state-sanctioned discrimination, incarceration and police brutality from which our organization, like so many across the nation, takes its name. It was certainly not the first, nor last, riot of its kind, and in no way marked the end of cruelty or exclusion for the LGBTQIA2S+ community. But this year we are proud to celebrate 50 years of visibility, of unity and of revolution.
The Stonewall Chico Pride Planning Committee is dedicated to working within the understanding that LGBTQIA2S+ rights are human rights regardless of race, ethnicity, disability, religion, immigration or documentation status, sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, age or economic status. Our goal is to connect with our rich history while unifying our Chico community through local sponsors, vendors, entertainment and a weekend of fun for everyone. Please do not hesitate to contact the planning committee, as we welcome any and all feedback regarding the inclusion and celebration of ALL members of our LGBTQIA2S+ community.
Our 4-day Pride schedule is packed with a myriad of events for everyone's tastes, and seeks to increase the visibility of the LGBTQIA2S+ community here in Chico. With an attendance of around 6,000 (which grows every year), all proceeds go toward funding Stonewall Alliance's nonprofit programs including free and confidential HIV testing, low to no cost counseling, social and support groups, advocacy and training, and more.
