Mission & History

Star City Pride is the non profit organization that plans and produces Lincoln, Nebraska's official LGBTQIA2S+ Pride events each year.

Star City Pride works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. We do this by producing LGBTQIA2S+ Pride events that inspire, educate, commemorate and celebrate our diverse community.


Our goals as a non-profit organization are to:

● Educate and raise the awareness of the general public as to the history and the social and legal rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual and two-spirit individuals (LGBTQIA2S+) in their communities; 

● Foster an understanding and acceptance of such individuals so as to eliminate prejudice, discrimination and defend human and civil rights; 

● Promote equitable treatment and inclusion of all people in employment, public access, and housing; and 

● Sponsor and promote educational programs and events, including an annual pride festival to foster such understanding and to celebrate the diversity within communities so as to ultimately achieve unity, harmony, and equality.
