Thanks for stopping by! We're SIP, S.I. Pride, Southern Illinois Pride.

We are a local group that meets monthly. Southern Illinois has a rich LGBTQIA history. We aim to address social needs of LGBTQIA residents and discuss our future in this area.

We launched in late summer of '16 with a few people, then 7 committees, then four committees, and now a small volunteer board. We organized in efforts to help unite and network our community, creating the strong foundation for our broad population to flourish. All LGBTQIA people ages 20 and above are invited. Anyone under 20, please look around and check thelocal resources tabto find more for you.

We make every effort to include all area LTBTQIA friendly events and gatherings on the calendar.  If you know of an additional event that is not listed, please do us a favor and send the information to us through the Contact Us page and we will add it.  


The Southern Illinois AIDS Walk is Saturday March 25th at 11AM. Come out and have a gay ol' time.
