About us

Our Mission

Star City Pride was created to support the LGBTQIA community in Lincoln, NE. Every year in July, allies and members of our community come together to celebrate what Pride stands for and to raise awareness of equality in our city.  This annual two day event is not possible without the generous support of our donors and advertisers.

Star City Pride is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established to accomplish the following goals:

  • To educate and raise awareness of the general public as to the presence of homosexual (lesbian and gay), bisexual, and transgender individuals in their communities.
  • To foster an understanding and acceptance of such individuals so as to eliminate prejudice, discrimination and defend human and civil rights.
  • To sponsor and promote educational programs and events, including an annual pride festival to foster such understanding and to celebrate the diversity within communities so as to ultimately achieve unity, harmony and equality.
