As you may already know, in 2019 Maui Pride evolved into two distinct groups, Aloha Maui Pride and The Maui Equality Coalition. As both groups now have their own websites up and running we’ve updated our website to reflect these changes with direct links to each website.
Aloha Maui Pride now leads the local social calendar of all things LGBTQ on Maui as well as organizing the annual Maui Pride Festival in October.
The Maui Equality Coalition is placing focused attention on the social issues surrounding LGBTQ youth and Kupuna on Maui.
While each organization focuses on specific initiatives we all maintain the same broader intention to foster a community that is well served and well represented in Hawaii with love and Aloha. Too often we think it’s someone else’s responsibility to organize or speak up for the community. Sadly many assume that there are no issues facing our community because we live in paradise. If only that were true.
We have divided our workload but there is still much work to be done. We invite you to reach out and become acquainted with each organization. A great place to start is at their respective websites:
As always, your support for ongoing Maui LGBTQ events is incredibly important to all our success. A united community matters.
With great appreciation and much Aloha,
The Maui Equality Coalition & Aloha Maui Pride
