Lake County Pride: Raising Awareness

Who are we?

Lake County Pride Organization Corp. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit consisting of myself, Danielle M. Olivani, its creator and founder.  

Lake County Pride was created to promote civil service, awareness, and education about issues affecting the LGBTQIA+ community in the Lake County area.  Your donations will support Pride awareness and education in Lake County, Florida.

Due to COVID 19, we hosted a virtual Pride for the entire community on Saturday, September 19th, 2020, with notable guest performers Ginger Minj, Adam Joseph, and Matty Rants.  The event was streamed on Facebook and YouTube and viewed by over 2000 people.  All proceeds made from this event were donated to Equality Florida's TransAction.

  Working alongside me are my fellow board members, volunteers, and local allies, including but not limited to our primary fiscal contributor and supporter, The Contigo Fund, The City of Mount Dora, FL, Embrace Magazine, Deland Pride, St. Pete Pride 2020, Lakeside Chamber Player's, Equality FLORIDA, Lake-Sumter College Gay-Straight Alliance, Lake County Democrats, Momma Ashely Rose, and Rose Dynasty Foundation Inc., The National Bearded Empress Pageant,   WellFlorida Council, Pineapple Healthcare, and The United Way of Lake and Sumter County. 

We welcome year-round community partnerships to strengthen the LGBTQIA+ experience in Central Florida and beyond...
