Get Involved with PRidefest
MobPride, formerly known as Mobile, Alabama Pride, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit based service organization in Mobile, Alabama serving the greater Mobile Metropolitan area. We have completed our restructuring phase, having set specific missions and goals for the organization. Promoting pride, respect, and service for the LGBTQ community of the greater Mobile, AL metropolitan area is the primary focus of MOB Pride. We are a service organization by design, for all people, regardless of race, age, sex, religious beliefs/affiliation, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
Some of the services that MOB Pride has committed to providing the community at large include HIV/AIDS/STD awareness, education, and testing; job fairs for marginalized populations; name change/gender marker change clinics for members of the transgender community; providing free training to public safety agencies in Mobile County in issues/diversity in the LGBTQ community; and referrals for healthcare/mental healthcare; and a newly-formed transgender support group. Additionally, we seek to provide a “buddy system” program, whereby volunteers will spend
time with those afflicted with AIDS who are homebound or hospitalized (including providing meals as needed).
By far, our largest event that we hold is our family-friendly annual PrideFest. Our 2019 PrideFest was a tremendous success not only for our organization but our vendors and sponsors as well (as indicated by a post-festival survey administered to vendors and sponsors). PrideFest also promoting many local entertainers We are pleased to announce that the 2020 PrideFest will be held on Saturday, April 18th. On behalf of the Board of directors of MobPride, we thank you for taking the time to learn more about our organization and ways to become an advocate of the LGBTQ community in the greater Mobile, Alabama metropolitan area.
