Your contribution will launch our movement forward as we bring LGBTQ+ inclusive events to the rural and urban areas of the Navajo Nation.
Our Pride Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. From our Board of Directors to our staff, each person is leading this movement. Join us!
All organizations, tribal programs, & vendors have to reserve booth space. Make sure to do that today!
HONORING OUR YOUNG PEOPLE
In 2020, Diné Pride will honor our LGBTQ+ Youth who will be the movement leaders & changemakers for our Sovereign Nations into the future. 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+ celebration for the largest Sovereign Nation in the United States.
Proudly hosted in Window Rock, Arizona - several events in June 2020 will include an Indigenous Youth Summit, Welcome Reception & Queer Showcase, Festival, After-Party, & a Drag Breakfast Brunch with indigenous LGBTQ+ headliners from around the country.

LEADERS FOR PRIDE
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.
