a network of SKILLS & KNOWLEDGE

LGBTIQ+ initiatives are often missing key skills, knowledge, or capacity to achieve their goals. Pride by Side exists to change that.

We pair LGBTIQ+ initiatives that need support with experts that can provide it. We also broker the reverse, too—plugging LGBTIQ+ expertise into organisations that need it.

For smaller NGOs and community groups, support is free.
