Our Mission

The Primary Mission of Augusta Pride is to promote visibility and pride and to provide cultural unity and diversity education for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Ally (LGBTQA) communities of the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA). A Secondary Mission is to initiate and support efforts to raise awareness of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases in the LGBTQA community of the CSRA and to contribute to efforts to provide resources in support of those living with HIV.
