PrideFest

In June each year, Hampton Roads Pride takes front and center stage in the civic consciousness with our popular, family-friendly PrideFest event in Town Point Park, Norfolk, Virginia. PrideFest is one of the largest Pride festivals in Virginia, and the only such event in the United States to host a Pride Boat Parade highlighting our connections with the maritime history of our port cities. PrideFest brings together 40,000+ members of the LGBT community and its allies to socialize, support one another, share ideas, and organize in a visible and positive environment. PrideFest draws ever-growing crowds while greatly increasing awareness about LGBT issues, raising funds for our cause, and building trust and bonds with our supporters. Free and open to all.

Hampton Roads Pride’s inaugural Run the Rainbow 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run was the first race in the Nation to host a gender neutral registration thanks to our partnership with the amazing team at Mettle Events.

Our annual race attracts runners from across the east coast and is a perfect blend of fitness, family and coastal fun providing a great opportunity for businesses and organizations to connect directly with the thriving Hampton Roads Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) and allied communities. Our hope for this race is to inspire new runners and youth to adopt a healthy lifestyle and get involved with the Community. Virtual race registration available.

Since 2007, the Hampton Roads Pride has made funding scholarships in support of the next generation of innovative leaders an annual budget priority. We are proud to have awarded over $60,000 in scholarships as of 2020. Our scholarships are based on merit, academics, and community involvement. Hampton Roads Pride offers up to four $1,600 scholarships each year paid directly to each recipient’s educational institution.

Scholarships are awarded to assist with the educational expenses of people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning (LGBTQ+), or identify with an affiliated community (including, but not limited to, Intersex, Asexual, Pansexual, Two-spirit, Nonbinary, Agender, and Genderqueer) as well as LGBTQ+ allies (those who do not identify as LGBTQ+, but who are allied with and support the LGBTQ+ community).

Applicants must have a grade point average of 3.0 or above, and provide official transcripts from their educational institutions.

Applicants must reside in the Commonwealth of Virginia in one of the following areas: Accomack County, Chesapeake City, Hampton City, Isle of Wight County, James City County, Newport News City, Norfolk City, Northampton County, Poquoson City, Portsmouth City, Suffolk City, Virginia Beach City, Williamsburg City, or York County.
