About Westfield Pride

Making Westfield safe and inclusive for all.

We are a dedicated group of individuals working towards creating an inclusive, loving, and educated community for LGBTQIA+ individuals and their allies. Through our events, support structures, and educational initiatives, we strive to foster a sense of belonging and celebrate the diversity that makes our community thrive.

Join our Committee!

Following last year’s successful series of PRIDE events, Westfield PRIDE is planning several events for June 2024 – all will be free to the public.

WP is Westfield’s volunteer organization, founded last year, to celebrate, honor, and support individuals within our LGBTQIA+ community.

WP is seeking committee members for each of the numerous events being planned for this year’s PRIDE Month in June. We are asking those interested in participating to please submit a completed Google form found here.

Several of last year’s events are being repeated and more are being planned. Details for each event will be forthcoming.

We look forward to our second year of fun, exciting, interesting, educational and collaborative efforts aimed at enhancing life, work, and play within the city we call “home.”
