NorCal OUTreach Project has been the driving force behind Redding Pride every year since 2009. It is the largest annual gathering for the local LGBTQIA+ community. The festival attracts a wide range of supportive local agencies, nonprofits, businesses and organizations. Past Prides have been attended by 2000+, and we expect attendance to be even greater in 2023.
NorCal OUTreach Project, a 501-c3 non-profit organization (EIN# 27-2073271) and is Redding’s LGBTQIA+ Center. We are currently 100% donation & volunteer driven and have been serving the local LGBTQIA+ and Ally community since 2008.
Our mission is to support and unite the LGBTQIA+ community and its many Allies by providing social connection, public events, support groups, and educational trainings. We strive to be inclusive of all genders and sexualities, celebrate the diversity within our community, practice cultural humility, and foster the health and wellbeing of the people we serve. We are committed to making rural northern California a safer and more accepting place for all by increasing understanding, acknowledgement, visibility and appreciation of the LGBTQIA+ community.
