About CoastPride

CoastPride is an organization created by our local community in San Mateo County to improve the support, visibility and awareness of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) individuals and families.

CoastPride embraces allies to create an affirming and welcoming community that nurtures individuals of all ages, ethnicities, cultures, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression to live to their full potential.

We believe that together we will continue to make the Coastside, from Pacifica to Pescadero, a kind and safe place for the LGBTQ+ community at large.

Our vision

A welcoming and safe Coastside where all LGBTQ and gender-expansive individuals, their families, and allies, thrive.

Our mission

Creating a Coastside that supports and celebrates people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

“Phenomenal work! Thank you for your leadership!”

Superintendent, Cabrillo Unified School District
