Silicon Valley Pride
Silicon Valley Pride is a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community and our allies.
It all started back in 1975 as a gay rights rally and evolved into San Jose Pride Festival in 1976. The following year, 1977 San Jose added its first parade to the celebration. In 2014 San Jose Pride was changed to Silicon Valley pride to include neighboring cities to encourage unity. It is now the largest Pride celebration of the South Bay and is a family friendly event. It is important, now more than ever, to make our voices heard and to celebrate our diversity!
Committee members assist the board in executing our mission statement for what it means to be Silicon Valley Pride proud! They help in everything from deciding on the talent to assisting the day of. Some of the committees include: Marketing and Special Events, Parade, Operations and Logistics, Grants, Sponsorship, and Talent.
