The Annual Report is a summary of what happened to pride organisers community during the last year and a plan for the years to come. Feel free to read it now!
The authors of the report say:
There have been many achievements over the past twelve months that you will read about in the next pages, however we will use this space to highlight just a couple of them. Copenhagen 2021 was a success. Despite the challenges of COVID-19, members came from around the globe to be part of WorldPride, to participate in one of the largest Human Rights Conferences, and to be present at many of the 1,006 events offered. We congratulate Copenhagen and Malmö for a successful WorldPride.
One of highlights is that InterPride has hired subcontractors to help the organisation with growth and demand for success. They brought on a Stakeholder Engagement Consultant, a Fund Development Project Manager and a Communications and Administration Project Manager. Their work has excelled with the successful growth of InterPride and rising international status, especially among Pride Organizations across the world. Having “staff” has given a breath of fresh air to the organization. This is a stepping stone for InterPride to bring on much-needed support for our growth and that of our Pride Membership. The need to move towards hired staff has become imminent.
The pandemic was a burden for pride community. In the report we can read:
Staying connected has been a mainstay with InterPride. Remote monthly meetings and weekly check-ins have been a norm for the global organization. However, each year we look forward to an in-person meeting and networking with one another at our Annual General Meeting & World Conference. Sadly, with COVID-19 still holding its grip on us globally, we will not meet together again this year. However, we will utilize the power of technology and hold many informative and educational workshops, caucus meetings, and continue the governance of our organization.
The Co-Presidents report gives an overview of the extraordinary work that goes into a volunteer-run organization along with the Project Managers. Without the members who join the Executive Board and committees, this work cannot get done.
InterPride exists to promote Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride on an international level, to increase networking and communication among Pride Organizations, and to encourage diverse communities to hold and attend Pride events and to act as a source of education.
InterPride accomplishes its mission with Regional Conferences and a General Meeting and World Conference (GM&WC). At the GM&WC, InterPride members network and collaborate on an international scale and take care of the business of the organization. InterPride is a voice for the LGBTQIA+ community around the world. We stand up for inequality and fight injustice everywhere.
Founded in 1982, InterPride is the world’s largest organization for organizers of Pride events. InterPride is incorporated in the USA and is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization under US law. It is funded by Membership dues, sponsorship, merchandise sales and donations from individuals and organizations.
Pro Diversity is the only Polish member of InterPride.
