THE MISSION of WPBC
A Well-rounded Program for Well-rounded Results
At World Pride Basketball Championships, our mission is to foster inclusivity, equality, and community empowerment within the LGBTQ+ community and its allies through the unifying power of basketball. We believe in the transformative impact of sports as a platform for social change, and we are committed to organizing a biennial basketball tournament that not only celebrates the diversity of our community but also provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals of all backgrounds to come together, compete, and build lasting connections.
We believe that diversity is our greatest strength. Our tournament welcomes players and supporters from all walks of life, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, or background. We aim to create a space where everyone feels valued, respected, and free to be themselves.
We are dedicated to promoting equality both on and off the court. Through our tournament, we strive to challenge stereotypes, break down barriers, and raise awareness about LGBTQ+ rights, while also advocating for a society where everyone is treated with fairness and dignity.
We recognize the importance of building strong, supportive communities. Our tournament serves as a platform for individuals to connect, share experiences, and form bonds that extend beyond the event itself. We believe that by fostering these connections, we can create a network of support that extends throughout the LGBTQ+ community and beyond.
We believe in the power of sports to empower individuals. Our tournament not only provides an opportunity for friendly competition but also serves as a platform for personal growth, self-expression, and empowerment. We strive to inspire participants to become advocates for positive change within their own lives and communities.
Education and Awareness:
We are committed to raising awareness about LGBTQ+ issues, promoting education, and combating discrimination. Through our tournament, we aim to create a space where individuals can learn, grow, and gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and triumphs faced by the LGBTQ+ community.
