ABOUT US

Paper Heart

Lost River Pride is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. It sponsors and produces the annual Lost River Pride Event, and related activities, serving the Lost River Valley lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ+) communities, by educating and advocating nondiscrimination, diversity, pride, inclusion, and equality among the LGBTQ+ community and their allies throughout the Lost River Valley and beyond. The corporation celebrates pride in diversity, community, and shared cultural history.

Following a pause in activities during the pandemic, we reorganized and held our largest pride festival yet in 2023.  We are actively seeking additional volunteers and sponsors to continue with our event organizing and to help make our Pride festival a special and memorable event for all of our friends and allies in the Lost River Valley and beyond. 

In 2023, we proudly established the Lost River Pride Scholarship through the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation.  This yearly $1,000 scholarship benefits graduating seniors or prior year graduates from any high school in Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, or Pendleton Counties.  See here for more information or to apply. 

If you're interested in volunteering or becoming a sponsor, please feel free to contact us!
