Welcome! Druid City Pride is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community organization that serves and advocates for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ+) members of the West Alabama community and their allies.
We host several events, and fundraisers throughout the year culminating with our annual Druid City Pride festival in October! Click HERE for information about our upcoming events!
2014 - The first Tuscaloosa Pride march was organized be the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Tuscaloosa.
2015 - Following the 2014 march a planning committee, made up of members from the West Alabama community, was formed. 2015 also saw the addition of a small festival following the march. (Seeing the fast growth of Tuscaloosa Pride the decision was made to formally organize a firm Board after the 2015 event. Also, the name of the organization was officially changed to Druid City Pride.)
2016 - With increased community interest, the Druid City Pride Board decided to add more events throughout the year. The first Druid City Pride Festival was held in October. (The march was dropped due to lack of interest.)
2017 - Druid City Pride officially incorporated with the Alabama Secretary of State and was granted 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
2020 - Druid City Pride celebrated its Fifth Annual Pride Festival virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
2021 - With 2020 (and all things virtual) in the past, we are beyond excited to resume our in-person festival this October!!
We look forward to working with you as Druid City Pride continues to grow and serve the LGBTQ+ community and our allies in West Alabama!
