Bastrop Pride's mission is to create and grow community for LGBTQIA+ members, their families, their friends, and allies and raise awareness of LGBTQ+ issues in Bastrop County, TX and the surrounding area. We're here to celebrate all that makes us unique and all that brings us together.
2023-2024 Strategic Goals:
Bastrop Pride is committed to increasing visibility and decreasing prejudice as we move into our second year and refine our organizational goals.The primary goal is to ramp-up providing resources and educational activities for the community to 50% of what Bastrop Pride engages in. This will include, but not limited to
reaching out to Allies advancing visibility within Bastrop County
accessibility for free HIV/AIDS testing (partnering with other non-profits such as Kind Clinic)
providing online & in-person literature in the realm of education, well-being and visibility
Given the rural nature of Bastrop County, we will be focused on investing in more Virtual Events for group discussions, books clubs and visits from subject matter experts. Bastrop Pride will continue to champion safety and visibility as we work with local organizations to promote the education & well-being of the LGBTQIA+ community in Bastrop.
