About me:We Fought For Marriage Rights!
Bakersfield LGBTQ was born in 2004, as a result of a small group of concerned community menmbers who wanted to see more community activities and advocacy. Originally, we werer allied with Marriage Equality California, but when we decided to put on a Pride festival in the Fall of 2004, we went out on a limb and formed our own group, Bakersfield LGBTQ. We have now successfully held four Prides, and are excitedly planning our next Pride Festival for October 2011!
We were recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 non-profit in 2006. We strive to serve our community with educational, advocacy and social opportunities and to date, we have held over 500 successful events of all kinds. This Spring we have joined the Consolidated Alliance of Pride, Inc (CAPI), and this brings us into a very strong relationship with Pride committees all over the Western US and Mexico.
Our vision for the future includes a Bakersfield LGBTQ Virtual Center, a communitywide effort to bring people support groups, social events, educational seminars, advocacy groups and of course, more Pride..
Bakersfield LGBTQ is a nonprofit, social justice and service organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning individuals, their families and the community. We are dedicated to creating positive change in people’s lives through advocacy, education, social support and networking.
Our Core Purpose
Bakersfield LGBTQ exists to create activities which support individuals and the community at large in becoming empowered emotionally, financially, intellectually and socially.
Dedicated Bakersfield LGBTQ members and volunteers embrace the following values and will:
·Value diversity by accepting each person’s uniqueness.
·Show respect and dignity for others by welcoming and accepting all individuals.
·Demonstrate integrity through excellence in service, honest communication and responsiveness to our Community.
·Be resourceful and enthusiastic in order to support the growth of the organization to meet Community needs.
..This group is the center of LGBTQ social and political organizing in Bakersfield and Kern County, California. We support issues and plan the grand event of the year, Bakersfield's Gay Pride Festival. We welcome all supportive folks, regardless of orientation.
..Since 2003, Bakersfield LGBTQ has been working to foster community unity via this group. We plan the flagship event, the annual Pride festival every year on Labor Day weekend, and we hold other social, political and informational events throughout the year!
Who I'd like to meet:
We welcome anyone who is supportive of LGBTQ rights and issues, and who wishes to support those rights with action. We will never discriminate against anyone based on race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, political affiliation, gender identity or sexual orientation. Please note that this is not a hookup group.
