Pride is held each year by LGBTQ+ communities the world over to celebrate accomplishments made toward gaining full civil rights and continue the push for more until equality is achieved. The first Central Coast Pride was organized in 1997, over the years, Central Coast Pride has grown from a few hundred attendees to one of San Luis Obispo's largest community events.
