The Tampa Bay Pride Band was born from the desire to have an outstanding musical ensemble affiliated with the LGBT community serve as a point of pride for ALL members of the Tampa Bay community. We intend to present and promote music of the highest quality with an outstanding concert program, partnering with other musicians and ensembles in the state of Florida. We also represent the LGBT community in the Bay Area Pride parades in both Tampa and St. Petersburg. We hope you’ll join us to make great music as a point of pride for community bands in the Bay Area. Contact us through this site to become a part of this exciting ensemble.
The Tampa Bay Pride Band welcomes LGBTQIA musicians and their allies to present and promote music of the highest artistic quality in service to the Tampa Bay community, including a marching band and color guard, the Tampa Bay Symphonic Winds concert band, and chamber ensembles.
The Tampa Bay Pride Band and Tampa Bay Symphonic Winds are committed to maintaining a community which recognizes and values the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We embrace tolerance, sensitivity, understanding, and mutual respect among our members. We encourage each individual band member to strive to reach their own potential. The Tampa Bay Pride Band and Tampa Bay Symphonic Winds prohibit discrimination against any member of the band community on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin or ancestry, genetic information, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, or status as a veteran. The Board of Directors are fully committed to these ideals and regulations, and every participant and volunteer in our program are expected to embrace them as well.
