Stonewall Chico Pride Weekend 2017

The mission of Stonewall Chico Pride Weekend is to strengthen and unite the LGBTQ+ community and allies through public events, social gatherings, and educational opportunities. The Weekend seeks to improve the lives of everyone by increasing visibility of LGBTQ+ people and making the North State community a safer place for all.

This year's theme is "Let's Get Back to the Future" with intent to recognize the state of our current political climate and respond accordingly to the needs of our community in moving forward. The Chico Pride Planning Committee will plan with the understanding that LGBTQIA+ rights are human rights regardless of one’s race, ethnicity, disability, religion, immigration or documentation status, sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, age, or economic status.
