The Mission of Chicago Black Pride (CBP) is to develop, implement and sponsor programs, activities, and special events to promote unity, cultivate pride and help improve the quality of life of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender persons and Same Gender loving Men and Women of African descent. (CBP) is committed to building awareness and pride in the diversity of the LGBT-SGL community.
Chicago Black Pride will be a central resource to bring together the LGBT-SGL people of African descent in the city of Chicago and throughout the Midwest. This will be accomplished through our promotional efforts, support, education, and by celebrating pride in the Black LGBT-SGL community’s rich culture, diversity, contributions and achievements. CBP will accomplish this not only during the Pride weekend but also throughout the year.
CBP Vision is to build a strong community through communication, positive visibility, and educational opportunities while facilitating and fostering relationships within the Same-Gender-Loving, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender community of African descent and as well as the African-American community in whole. To serve as a conduit of resources that fosters a unified community.
