Mission & Vision

Celebrating 25 years in Northern Arizona

MISSION

Northern Arizona Pride Association’s mission is to educate, celebrate and increase acceptance and awareness of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirits and transgender (LGBTQ2S) community of Flagstaff and Northern Arizona.

Through the production of our annual Pride in the Pines festival, we aspire to make a positive difference in the LGBTQ2S reality while creating a sense of Community. It is our Mission to embrace, promote, and support our cultural diversity, civil, and human rights by fighting discrimination of any kind.

Vision

Northern Arizona Pride Association’s vision is to increase LGBTQ2S visibility and equality and end homophobia and transphobia in Northern Arizona. Through the production of Pride in the Pines, we hope to foster a more tolerant and accepting atmosphere for the LGBTQ2S community thereby encouraging the growth of diversity here in Northern Arizona.
