YOUR Voice,

YOUR Power

This is our 2023 theme.

Your donation will continue our mission of reducing suicide & homelessness in the LGBTQ+ community.


The Pride and Joy Foundation operates on a volunteer and part-time staff of two with an occasional volunteer intern. All support helps us maintain our website, social medias and programming. Thank YOU for helping us help others.


Our mission and vision

Our mission is to prevent suicide and homelessness in the LGBTQ+ community.  We do that in two ways:

  1. We empower parents of LGBTQ+ youth to ensure the success of our next generation of LGBTQ+ leaders.
  2. We provide ways to increase LGBTQ+ visibility and success through publishing and speaking.

Our vision is for every LGBTQ+ individual to be heard, housed, and mentally healthy.

Make our vision a reality!
