A nonprofit organization, Celebrating and Supporting the LGBTQ community on Maui
Pride Events planned for 2019
A small group of people were approached in November 2018 to assist in organizing Maui's annual Pride festival. They invited others to get involved and a planning group was formed. In March 2019, it was determined that a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization was needed to focus efforts on all the details that go into holding an inclusive, diverse LGBTQ festival. A poll was posted on social media, and the community voted for a new festival and organization name that represented the Love, Peace, and Compassion of Hawaii; Aloha Maui Pride.
Today, Aloha Maui Pride, aka AMP, is busy working to make the next the Pride festival the best ever!
The vision of Aloha Maui Pride is to celebrate and support the LGBTQ community on Maui. At the heart of the organization's role within the community is the annual Pride festival on Maui. This diverse, inclusive event brings together the LGBTQ community and their allies in a safe place to celebrate and honor the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Gender non-conforming, Non-binary, Aikane, Mahu Wahine, Hahu Kane, people of color, race, and national origin.
