Presented by Pittsburgh Pride Group, Pittsburgh Pride Revolution 2022 is year two of this organization’s Pride community collaborative celebration. It is a full four day festival, both in person and virtual. — A coming together of over 13,000+ LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies.

This year our mission is to continue to return PRIDE to our community, celebrating the many creatives, activists, and game-changers of Pittsburgh’s LGBTQIA+ community.

“We need pride to be diverse, inclusive and visible. We need to be heard, especially when so many in our community are under attack across the country and in our own backyard. We also need to celebrate ourselves in an open and inclusive way. For the first time in Pittsburgh history, we have black trans and non binary leadership at the helm of a Pittsburgh regional pride event.”
