The Pagan Pride Project is a national non-profit organization that aims to advance religion and eliminate prejudice and discrimination based on religion. Their mission is to foster pride in Pagan identity through education, activism, charity and community. The project promotes tolerance and understanding between people with different belief systems. Under the Pagan Pride Project's umbrella, events have been hosted in all 50 states and several countries around the world since 1997. Although events are locally organized, each has the common thread of educating the community and ending discrimination based on spiritual beliefs. Each event must organize a donation drive that benefits a local charity in need.
WHAT IS PAGAN PRIDE DAY?
The Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Project was formed in 2012 by a group of local Pagans who wanted to share their faith, meet other practitioners of Pagan faiths, and reduce religious discrimination in New Orleans. As the spiritual environment in New Orleans is truly eclectic, the Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Project includes syncretic traditions like Voodoo & Hoodoo, and anyone who self-identifies as Pagan. Our first festival was held in 2013, and has grown annually.
We are excited to announce that 2022 marks the 8th Greater New Orleans Pagan Pride Day event!
