Honolulu Pride 2021



After much deliberation the Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation has come to the difficult decision that, due to the unpredictable nature of COVID-19 virus and the recent increase of case counts, this year’s Honolulu Pride Parade & Festival will not be an in-person event. In its place, we are hosting a Virtual Honolulu Pride with all the fun, educational and inspiring programs from last year, plus a few new surprises.

Like everyone, we feel a responsibility to help protect our community, so we are hosting a 2021 Virtual Honolulu Pride that will include the KHON2 special program Aloha With Pride, the Tiny Floats Parade (with prizes!), a series of Rainbow Town Halls and the wildly popular Virtual After Party. With the UH Manoa LGBTQ+ Center, we’re producing a Coming Out Day online video project and a Community Resource Fair. We’re also introducing a new project, Faces Of Pride, and we will once again install the Rainbows Over Waikiki Pride Banners, thanks to presenting sponsor Hawaiian Airlines

Stay tuned for more details and please join us for this year’s Virtual Honolulu Pride. Keep the LGBTQ+ aloha growing and flowing–virtual, at a distance–but, more than ever, diverse, all-inclusive and very real. Mahalo nui!

As an all-volunteer organization, we can’t do it without you, so please consider making your contribution to help us make 2021 Honolulu Pride the best ever. Mahalo!
