Pride Support Network Mission Statement:
To Empower and Connect LGBTQiA2S+ people with culturally relevant and affirming resources, programs, and support groups, and create a better connected community.

About Us:
Pride Support Network was born out of Bemidji’s first LGBTQ2S+ Pride festival in 2021.

This outreach organization is our way of ensuring Pride is more than just a once a year Festival. We do this by giving back to the community year round. We are a grassroots, community driven organization.

Whether you are looking for support groups, LGBTQ2S+ education for staff, or looking to attend or, host a Queer or Two Spirit event, we are here to help.

Key Collaborators:

Our staff are all volunteers that work full-time jobs outside of doing work for Pride Support Network. Please be patient if you don’t get a reply right away.
