Bringing together the LGBTQ community of the San Mateo County coastside

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.
