QC Pride was founded in 2008 and revived in 2017 with its current Board of Directors. Staying true to our mission, our goal is to create a thriving LGBTQ+ community in the Quad Cities. QC Pride endeavors to host several events throughout the year, highlighted with the annual Unity Pride Week.
We are a welcoming group of people who value unity above all. The theme of each of our events will be 'unity,' as we believe that community is the key to success. We've all heard the old adage of "United we stand, divided we fall." Well, let's prove to the world just how strong we can be when we stand together. Be friendly, be accepting, be true.
To promote awareness and visibility of the LGBTQ+ community in the Quad Cities region.
To celebrate diversity and self-identity through community events and gatherings where everyone can feel united, included and respected.
