Who we are

In 2015 the Oxford Pride Committee evolved from the Oxford County Rainbow Coalition . The Oxford County Pride Committee is comprised of  LGBTQ community members and allies.  The objective of our committee is to compliment the goals and objectives of the Rainbow Coalition.Through the development of an artistic and cultural LGBTQ  Pride celebrations we recognize sexual and gender diversity throughout Oxford County. In doing so the Pride Committee highlights organizations, business’ services and opportunities that support and promote positive outcomes for the LGBTQ community and Allies.

 

Our Mission

The mission of the Oxford County LGBTQ Pride Committee is to work in conjunction with the Oxford Rainbow Coalition to make Oxford County an inclusive, diverse and safe for the LGBTQ within our community. Through education and advocacy our goal is to dispel and eliminate myths of homophobia, trans-phobia and hetero-sexism, creating a safer inclusive  community in which to live or visit.
