Founded by Brian McGunagle, Westport Pride comprises a cross-section of our community’s LGBTQ+ residents and allies.  Our goal is to create an affirming culture in Westport that supports the full LGBTQ+ community and serves as a beacon to all.  Our core values are focused on creating a welcoming and connected community; increasing visibility of LGBTQ+ residents, issues, and concerns; improving understanding through education and intersectionality; supporting, mentoring, and inspiring our future leaders; inspiring advocates into action; and sharing our pride, culture and accomplishments. Westport Pride's fiscal sponsor is the Triangle Community Center in Norwalk, CT.
