Diné Pride is the official LGBTQ+ celebration for the largest Sovereign Nation in the United States.

Proudly hosted in Window Rock, Arizona - several virtual events are planned this year during these new times together.


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.
