Special Events

The Social and Mental Health Division is proud to participate in a number of LGBTQI2-S focused events each year, including San Gabriel Valley Pride.

Since 2016, the Pasadena Public Health and Public Library Departments have partnered to coordinate Pasadena’s annual National Coming Out Day Celebration.  With vendor booths, food, raffles, entertainment, and guest speakers, the NCOD Celebration has helped bring together hundreds of individuals and families through inclusivity and acceptance.
