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.

Important survey | Due December 4

The Pride Center and Stanford University collaborated on a COVID-19 survey to help provide services and resources for San Mateo County LGBTQ+ community members. If you reside in San Mateo County and identify as LGBTQ+ please complete the survey by December 4th.

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.
