Branch Pride EMPOWERS those we SERVE by SUPPORTING,EDUCATING & CELEBRATING our LGBTQ and associated communities.
Branch Pride. exists to celebrate our culture, commemorate our heritage, educate against homophobia and empower our diverse LGBTQ+ and associated community across Branch County.
Branch Pride. envisions a community characterized by a strong commitment to universal civil rights; safe communities, workplaces, and schools; stable families; and self-reliant lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals.
Branch Pride. forsees a time where all people across Branch County are fully empowered to participate safely, openly, and honestly in society, regardless of gender-identity or sexual orientation. We envision a community solidified by respect and love for our brothers and sisters in and outside of the LGBT community.
Branch Pride Inc. relies on the leadership and energy of its volunteers and the support of its sponsors to make these visions a reality. We strive to foster ongoing community education and sort through a public presence, outreach educational programs, social events and partnering with other organizations to make Branch County a welcoming place for all of us to call home and raise a family
