President’s Committees - contact at president@okcpride.org or volunteer
  • Events
    The Events Committee organizes, promotes and facilitates OKC Pride events throughout the year.  Events can range from fundraisers to charities, from block parties to awareness activities, and everything in between.  The Events committee works closely with Fundraising and Education & Outreach Committees (among others) to coordinate functions needed by those groups.  Whether helping with a specific event or being involved year-round, volunteering with the Events committee is a great way to get, and stay, connected with the LGBT community in OKC!
  • Fundraising & Finance
    The Fundraising & Finance Committee explores ways to raise money for Pride activities that happen throughout the year.  Fundraising & Finance are closely tied to Events.  If you have experience in fundraising, or have community connections that you would like to volunteer for the Fundraising & Finance committee’s use, please let us know!
  • Parade
    The Parade Committee specifically focuses on planning and facilitating all aspects of the annual Pride Parade that occurs during the OKC Pride weekend in spring or early summer.  Communication, organization and a head for logistics are important here.  If you would like to help organize a great parade for the upcoming Pride Week, please send us an email or use the volunteer form to let us know!
