Royal Ball

Spring 2019 (Bi-annual) 

The Royal Ball is Pacific Pride Foundation's largest fundraiser and is brought to you by the prestigious Merryl Brown Events. The evening ignites with a bevy of entertainment, step and repeat, custom seating areas, and a dance party you won't want to miss.  Proceeds from the Royal Ball and Silent Auction all benefit the programs and services of Pacific Pride Foundation. 

Transgender Day of Visibility

3/31/18

The foil to Transgender Day of Remembrance, this day of joyfulness and recognition centers the positive contributions, lives, and survival of transgender community members. With a block-party feel, this all-ages day historically centers Transgender Communities of Color (who are most at risk of anti-trans violence) - and includes local youth performances, film screenings, interviews with transgender celebrities, art installations, and much more. 

Details coming soon!

Transgender Day of Remembrance

11/20/18

This annual day of remembrance and sadness brings together our community to acknowledge, name, and mourn those transgender individuals (non-binary included) who were lost to anti-transgender violence in the last year. Together, we hold candles and read the names of our dead - reminding ourselves of how critical it is to push back against emboldened hate and the devaluing of transgender lives.

Your gift benefits the 10,000+ people we serve in Santa Barbara County each year.
