Discover the story behind us and our mission
Who We Are
PrideTT is the nationally recognised organising committee for T&T’s annual LGBTQI+ Pride celebrations. As a registered, non-profit organisation, we are comprised of volunteers, stakeholders and partners – all dedicated to the mission of bringing communities together to celebrate the lives and contribution of LGBTQI+ Trinbagonians.
Following the success of ‘Jones vs T&T’, a fresh flame was kindled in the local LGBTQ+ community. After three decades of independent (and mainly private) Pride Events in Trinidad and Tobago, a committee was commissioned in 2018 to coordinate and host a revolutionarily organised and publicised ‘Pride month’. And so, in July 2018, PrideTT hosted Trinidad & Tobago’s very first Pride Parade in Port-of-Spain.
Each year since then, we coalesce a group of dynamic and like-minded community members, and allies, to plan, execute and manage a month of ‘Pride’ activities, which always aspires to represent the diversity of our community and its varied experiences.

T&T is a nation where there is equitable protection of and access to individual human rights and freedoms, and members of the LGBTQ+ Community feel safe, proud and integrated into our society.
PrideTT’s mission is to provide a new platform, through LGBTQ+ Pride events and activities, for continued equitable social change in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Our goal is to have PrideTT celebrations grow and become a staple in T&T’s cultural celebrations calendar, while provoking dialogue, creating spaces for Queer expression, and leveraging the innate skills and talent of our Community to define self-empowerment and pride!
