Bi-Rite Pride



Our community goes beyond the four walls of our stores. This June, we are asking our guests, our staff, and our non-profit partners to come together and show our Bi-Rite pride – in support and celebration of LGBTQQ advocacy and organizing in San Francisco.

WHO am I supporting?

We are working with the following nonprofit partners because they do their work right here in our beloved city, they have a long track record of grassroots organizing and community impact, and our staff helped choose them!

LYRIC is a community resource center that builds a positive and vibrant future for LBGTQQ youth. Their mission is to build community and inspire positive social change through education enhancement, career trainings, health promotion, and leadership development with LGBTQQ youth, their families, and allies of all races, classes, genders, and abilities. They envision a diverse society where LGBTQQ youth are embraced for who they are and encouraged to be who they want to be.

The Dyke March brings the dyke communities together to celebrate unity, raise consciousness and be visible. Organized by a volunteer-run coalition, the annual march takes place during the week of Pride celebration (last weekend of June). The rally/cultural event showcases the dyke community’s artists, critical thinkers and political activists. It is one day where dykes can proclaim space, rights, visibility and respect.

TGI Justice Project: Supports transgender, gender variant, and intersex people impacted by incarceration, detention, and policing through the creation of a unified family in the struggle for survival and freedom. TGIJP is led by low income transgender women of color and their families who are in prison, formerly incarcerated, or targeted by the police.  They work in collaboration with others to forge a culture of resistance and resilience to strengthen each other for the fight against human rights abuses, imprisonment, police violence, racism, poverty, and societal pressures. They seek to create a world rooted in self- determination, freedom of expression, and gender justice.
