THE LARGEST INDIGENOUS LGBTQIA+ PRIDE
Your contribution will launch our movement forward as we bring LGBTQ+ inclusive events to the most rural and urban areas of the Navajo Nation.

In response to requests from American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth, Western States Center partnered with the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, the Center for Native American Youth, and the Native Youth Leadership Alliance to develop a resource toolkit for and with young Native leaders.
Indigenizing Love is written to support Native youth, tribal communities, Two-Spirit and Native LGBTQIA+ collectives, community leaders, and partners who intend to better understand and support our Two-Spirit and LGBTQIA+ communities.
We will honor & celebrate our LGBTQIA+ relatives & reaffirm the sacredness of their identities.
There are countless socio-economic & educational disparities that impact our community. Diné Pride will reintroduce traditional knowledge & teachings that kept our LGBTQIA+ relatives safe & revered - the way our culture recognized at one point in history.
Executive Director & Co-Founder
Long before the forced Christian removal of our children to boarding schools, or the Stonewall riots, the Civil Rights Movement, and the fight to recognize marriage equality - it was our Indigenous Nations that recognized and protected our existence as LGBTQIA+ family members since time immemorial.
Hózhó Dooleł represents the beauty within us.
We are unapologetic, fierce,
& resilient LGBTQIA+ warriors.
Being gay, lesbian, trans, bisexual, queer, and two-spirit meant you were a sacred human being that was revered through history by the people. Navajo Nation Pride is reclaiming our traditional knowledge and is advocating for resilient families and our right to be who we are.
This year, as the pandemic comes to an end, we say boldly that we are alive and we are proud. We welcome you back to Diné Pride.
We are a movement to define generations.
