Youth + Families

The Hawai’i LGBT Legacy Foundation is committed to supporting LGBTQ+ youth and families: it’s a crucial part of our mission to nurture inclusion and engagement in Hawai’i’s larger diverse community.

Our newest social media channel, @HonoluluPrideFamilies, is an online gathering place for queer families to share information and events. With our partners, like the University of Hawai’i Mānoa LGBTQ+ Center, we sponsor challenging educational and safe social programs for Hawai’i’s LGBTQ+ young people. And with our sponsors like Wet ‘n’ Wild, Hawaiian Airlines and First Hawaiian Bank we create fun and supportive family-friendly spaces at our events like SPLASH, the Community Pride Picnic and Honolulu Pride.

Our partners have included Hawai’i Queer Parents, NQAPIA (National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance), Arts at Marks Garage, The Contingency, the Rainbow Alliance, Mark Kanemura, University of Phoenix Hawaii, Lambda Law Students Association, Ward Village Courtyard Cinema, Waikiki Health, and many others.

If you’d like to work with us to develop programs for Hawai’i’s LGBTQ+ youth and families, or are looking for sponsorship for an existing program, please email us at

Our work depends on the generosity of people across Hawaii who support LGBTQ+ people, our families, friends and allies. Please make a contribution today. Every donation, however large or small, makes a real difference.
