Celebrate with us at Key West Pride! We are proud to be a part of this fun event, and we’re excited to spread the word about Equality Florida.

This year, the Florida Competitive Workforce Act was heard in the state legislature for the first time in 10 years. This was a huge step forward, but now it’s time to lean in and get it passed once and for all!

Because of our work over the last twenty years and our incredible volunteers and local partners, more than 56% of Floridians live in communities that protect LGBT people from discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations. Now we are working to extend those protections to ALL LGBT Floridians, and we need your help at Key West Pride!

Event: Key West Pride
Date/Time: June 11 9:30 AM- 7:30 PM
Where: 700 & 800 blocks of Duval

We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers who care about equality, are comfortable connecting with people, and who are willing to share their enthusiasm with others.Volunteer shifts typically last three hours and involve engaging pride goers, signing up new members, and spreading the word about Equality Florida’s work!
