Thank you for your interest in sponsoring Pride Lafayette!

Founded in 2003, Pride Lafayette, Inc, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, continually educates and promotes awareness of diversity, health, culture and acceptance of individuals based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Working with the LGBTQ+ community in Greater Lafayette and north central Indiana, Pride Lafayette, Inc. facilitates and coordinates efforts and programs geared toward diversity education, health initiatives, community mobilization, cultural enhancement, and research. Pride Lafayette seeks to be the premier link to the Greater Lafayette LGBTQ+ community, to build bridges within the community and forge new bonds among young and old, life-long residents and newcomers, and community members living on both sides of the Wabash. We celebrate the strength and diversity of our community, and we foster an increased sense of well-being in the lives we touch.

Pride Lafayette operates the Pride Lafayette Community Center, the oldest LGBTQ+ community center in the state of Indiana, located on Main Street in the heart of downtown Lafayette. With the support of community volunteers, the Center offers daily open hours and provides a safe and welcoming space for the LGBTQ+ community, as well as partner organizations and outreach programs including PFLAG, TransLafayette, the Pride Lafayette Youth Group, and HIV Pathways. Working with the Tippecanoe County Health Department, the Center also offers regular HIV testing.

Pride Lafayette annually reaches and serves more than 10,000 people in the Greater Lafayette area. The organization partners with allied organizations within Purdue University, including the University’s LGBTQ Center and Purdue Employee Pride, to provide support and resources for students, faculty and staff alike. Pride Lafayette also serves as a resource to local governments, businesses, and community organizations to assist them in making Greater Lafayette a more welcoming and inclusive place for the LGBTQ+ community.   

Pride Lafayette is a member of InterPride, the international association of Pride organizations, and the United States Association of Prides, which helps to build vibrant and strong US Pride organizations through collaboration, support, networking, providing resources, helping to develop a national identity of Pride, and offering support and advocacy for its members.

None of the work we do would be possible with the support our corporate and community partners. If you would like to partner with Pride Lafayette, check out our Pride Lafayette 2024 Partnership Opportunities and contact our Interim Executive Director Derrick Jones (director@pridelafayette.org).
