The KindRED Pride Foundation was inspired by the desire to expand the magic created by the 28-year tradition of the original “Gay Day at Magic Kingdom” in Orlando. The event started with just a handful of people who decided they would meet socially on the first Saturday in June in front of the castle. They would all wear RED t-shirts to identify each other since they had only met on a bulletin board and never in person.
The KindRED Pride Foundation’s mission is to honor the kindred spirit, bravery, and courage of the original attendees back in 1991 by expanding the “grass roots” desire to bring the community together to celebrate our differences as well as our “oneness” and to support endeavors by like-minded charities within the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex, and Ally community (LGBTQIA) by producing sporting, music, and other special events. Our only discriminating criteria is whether you are “kind” or “not kind” as we search the world for Be Kind Champions! Color? Shape? Size? Age? Gender? Orientation? Nationality? Ability? None of these matter to us. All that matters; Are you Kind?
