Mission Statement

The mission of the Charlottesville Pride Community Network: To create a vibrant, visible, and unified LGBTQ community presence in Charlottesville and its surrounding region that promotes equality and integrates groups and individuals through events, outreach, resource-sharing, networking, and communications initiatives.

Cville Pride held Charlottesville's first-ever LGBTQ Pride Festival in September 2012 at Lee Park. The second festival was held on September 14, 2013. The Charlottesville City Council passed a resolution acknowledging the day, but the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors deadlocked on a similar motion. [1]

The third festival was held on September 13, 2014. [2]
