The Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation is committed to a legacy of hope, equality and unity. We support, empower, educate, unify, and facilitate LGBT organizations and individuals in Hawaii. The Foundation's major projects include Honolulu Pride™ and The LGBT Center – Waikiki, and we also sponsor and support dozens of educational, cultural, athletic and social events every year.
The LGBT Center-Waikiki is a gathering place for Hawaii’s LGBTQ+ community, hosting meetings, educational programs, trainings, film screenings, talk story events, and more. It's available free of charge to any non-profit organization serving LGBTQ people, and has become the “brick and mortar” home for more than a dozen of our most dedicated and diverse social, cultural and advocacy groups.
The annual Honolulu Pride™ Parade + Festival is becoming a true destination event; a celebration for the larger community–hosted by Hawaii’s LGBTQ+ people–welcoming everyone who supports equality (and wants to join in the fun).
As part of our mission, the Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation organizes, hosts and sponsors LGBT educational, social, athletic and cultural events throughout the year.
We support programs for the community, often organized by our board members, including special projects for Hawaii’s LGBT youth, film series, discussions, athletic events, special speaker engagements, and more.
We also participate in and support projects from outside Hawaii that help highlight the diversity and strength of our community, like NQAPIA's Family Acceptance Workshops and photographer iO Tillet Wright’s Self Evident Truths.
The Foundation also promotes other LGBT-related events through our Community Calendar and provides a list of relevant local and national Resources to help community members find the information they need.
Read our 2017 Annual Report to learn more about the Foundation's activities and impact.
As we continue to grow, the Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation plans to expand the hours and accesibility of the Center, continue to bring new community groups and sponsors into the Pride celebrations, and extend our outreach to, and support of, other Hawaii-based non-profits working toward equality for all.
