We are working on creating a new resource for our beautiful and loving community. In the coming weeks we will be announcing a new Community Resource guide for those that need critical resources such as Support Groups, Therapists, Counselors, Spiritual Guidance, Medical, Mental Wellbeing Support, Education Support & Legal. 

Are you someone that can provide a critical resource to our LGBTQ+ community? Send Jeff Lewis an email to get added to our growing list!

We are super excited that we will be bringing this to our community!



The WPN is an all-volunteer nonprofit and its efforts are made possible by those willing to donate one's time, talents, or finances to help make our dreams possible.

Sign up to volunteer for the Waco Pride Network today. Together, and only together, can we make a difference.

Your donation will not only support the financial aspects of our mission, it will serve as a statement.

Your donation says that you stand against those that wish us to simply go away, to remain silent about who we are.

Your donation says that you stand with this community in its struggle for affirmative acceptance and recognition.
