About Bisbee Pride


Bisbee Pride began in 2004 by a small group of LGBT friends. From a small local Pride Celebration Bisbee Pride has grown into a year round community service focused non-profit organization. We enjoy strong support from the local community. In fact Bisbee was the first municipality in Arizona to pass a Civil Union Ordinance before Marriage Equality became law.

Bisbee Pride, Inc. is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization committed to the goals of wellness, education, human rights and acceptance within the LGBTQ and greater Cochise County Community.
