The International Federation of Black Prides, Inc. (IFBP) is a coalition of Black Pride organizations formed to promote a multinational network of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Black Prides and community-based organizations (CBOs) dedicated to

  • Promoting grassroots organizing around issues adversely affecting the Black LGBT community.
  • Promoting community health and wellness.
  • Providing technical assistance to its member Prides.
  • Promoting unity.
  • Ensuring the development of education, economic empowerment, and individual and collective self-determination.

The mission of IFBP is to build awareness of and pride in the diversity of the Black LGBT community. Each local Black Pride is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the mission of the IFBP. Each Black Pride hosts year-round services and activities in addition to a multi-day festival that celebrates the rich cultural heritage of the Black LGBT community through educational workshops, health seminars, artistic events, and activism on the local level. Since its formation in 1999, the IFBP has grown to include 32 domestic member-and-affiliate Prides and three international Prides, with over 300,000 members of the Black LGBT community and other communities attending Black Pride events in 2010.
