In 2020, Diné Pride will honor our LGBTQ+ Youth who will be the movement leaders & changemakers for our Sovereign Nations. Before the Stonewall riots in New York City, our Indigenous gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, & two-spirit family members were honored as sacred beings. Our young people are reclaiming that history & protecting sacred knowledge for the next generation.
Diné Pride is the official LGBTQ+ Two-Spirit event for the largest Sovereign Nation in the United States. Proudly hosted in Window Rock, Arizona - several events in June 2020 will include a Youth Summit, Welcome Reception & Queer Showcase, Festival, After-Party, & a Drag Breakfast Brunch with indigenous LGBTQ+ headliners from around the country.
Diyingo ‘Adaanitsiiskéés LGBTQ+ Scholarship
A one-time $1,000 dollar scholarship to a High School Senior from the Navajo Nation who self-identifies as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or two-spirit. Applicants have made a significant contribution to the LGBTQ+ community and are addressing concerns facing their peers.
Diyingo Bee Da’ahiiniiatá LGBTQ+ Service Award
A one-time $400 dollar service scholarship to a Middle School or High School LGBTQ+ and/or Ally Club or Organization that serves a predominantly Navajo/Native student population.
Student Club/Organizations must be active for one-year and are planning to make a significant contribution to the LGBTQ+ community addressing concerns facing their peers.
Long before Stonewall & Obergefell v. Hodges, our Sovereign Nations honored & recognized our existence in history. Being LGBTQ meant you were sacred & revered. That is what we are advocating for - families, sovereignty, & our right to be.
