Leadership Team

Meet the dedicated individuals steering the course at Hampton Roads Pride. Our Board of Directors represents a diverse team of passionate leaders, united in their dedication to advancing LGBTQ+ rights and cultivating a vibrant, inclusive community.

Hampton Roads Pride does not have any paid staff; our organization is comprised entirely of volunteers. As an organization that advocates for our community, we place great value on diversity and inclusion. Our organization is comprised of passionate leaders of different races, genders, socioeconomic backgrounds, religions, and more.

It's through your generosity that we're able to continue providing for the LGBTQIA+ community in the 757. Please consider supporting our efforts by donating or getting involved today.
