Bringing together the San Mateo County Coastside in support of our LGBTQ community

How we’re helping

CoastPride offers a safe space online and at community events to gather the diversity of our voices, raise awareness of LGBTQ issues, and address the needs of our LGBTQ youth, families, and adults. We work with existing local civic, governmental, for-profit and nonprofit organizations to enhance services so that they are inclusive of all who play, work, and live on the coastside.

We invite you to join us—LGBTQ individuals and allies working together to make the coastside welcoming and supportive to all, because together we are stronger.

Support groups

Our support groups are moving to an online group-program format. Our parent/caregiver groups will continue to be held once per month, but youth groups will increase from bi-weekly to weekly to ensure our children have the support they need to survive in the face of this uncertain climate.

You can find log-in instructions by clicking on the appropriate event on our calendar. Teens joining a group for the first time will need to complete an intake form prior to the meeting; the link is included in the instructions.

Support groups will be held throughout summer

CoastPride stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. Systems of racism, like all injustices, are created and perpetuated by us. We are obligated to make systems change together. We believe that trust is earned when we listen, learn, and take concerted action that promotes healing and eradicates social injustice, including racialized injustice, across all settings. Black Trans Lives Matter. All Black lives matter.
