Empowerment through Unity & Pride - Orlando Black Pride
Orlando Black Pride’s Mission is to provide empowerment through the promotion of unity and pride while promoting community health and wellness, and social justice to the African-American Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Transgender (GLBT) community of Central Florida and beyond. During the first week of June, Orlando celebrates "Gay Disney" and Orlando Black Pride Week. Orlando Black Pride serves as the host to African-American GLBT participants during their visit to the Orlando area.
pride \prid\ noun – A sense of one’s own proper dignity or value; self-respect.
Orlando Black Pride and CMWP have one special word in common, PRIDE. Both of these organizations share a mission to help individuals and our community either gain or maintain "a sense of one's own proper dignity" - a sense of personal worth and self respect.
“Pride is a personal commitment. It is an attitude, which separates excellence from mediocrity.” – William Blake
