We want to honor the contributing members of our community and our allies and need your help to recognize them. Please take a moment to nominate one or two people to be Grand Marshals or be recognized with a Proclamation at Santa Cruz Pride this year. Help us recognize those leaders of our local LGBT community and allies who, over the course of many years and in a variety of ways, have made exceptional contributions with lasting positive impacts on our local LGBT community. Nominate the leader or leaders you would like to be considered for this recognition.

Help Fund Santa Cruz Pride!  

Every first Sunday in June, the Santa Cruz County Community joins with the voices of LGBTQ communities and their allies around the world in celebration of Pride Month. The Santa Cruz Pride Parade & Festival has been made possible for 40 years because of the - often brave - time, talent, and treasure contributions of our Santa Cruz County community members. As a community member, we ask for your monetary support in creating a safe space for our community members to gather, celebrate, listen, shout, chant, march, learn, exist, break bread, honor, speak, enjoy one another's company.
