Bringing together the San Mateo County Coastside in support of our LGBTQ community

How we’re helping

CoastPride offers a safe space online and at community events to gather the diversity of our voices, raise awareness of LGBTQ issues, and address the needs of our LGBTQ youth, families, and adults. We work with existing local civic, governmental, for-profit and nonprofit organizations to enhance services so that they are inclusive of all who play, work, and live on the coastside.

We invite you to join us—LGBTQ individuals and allies working together to make the coastside welcoming and supportive to all, because together we are stronger.

Support groups

Our support groups have moved to an outdoor, in-person format when weather permits. We are following Covid-19 guidelines requiring masks and social-distancing. We will provide hand sanitizer.

Visit our support groups page for more information on joining our groups.


Free teletherapy sessions

Outlet, a program of Adolescent Counseling Services, is offering six free teletherapy sessions to help LGBTQ youth cope with non-crisis issues, including those related to Covid-19.

Youth ages 10–25 with access to wifi qualify. If you are interested, please contact Clinical Director Sarah Burdge, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
