Phoenix Pride hosts an annual Awards Gala every June, following the Phoenix Pride Festival and Parade. This event focuses on recognizing the award key individuals from metropolitan Phoenix who have made a significant and positive impact in the LGBTQ community.
This is a special evening to honor and celebrate the contribution of individuals, organizations, businesses and political leadership from the LGBTQ community and our allies. We honor the past, celebrate the present and look into the future. It is an evening of entertainment, awards, and special presentations.
At the Gala we recognize our program beneficiaries by awarding scholarships and announcing contributions to community partners. We use this opportunity to raise funds for the Phoenix Pride Scholarship Program by hosting various fundraising activities through the night.
