This is the inaugural year for the global vision which builds on the 29-year tradition of “gay day” at Magic Kingdom® in Orlando, which is always held on the first Saturday of June to Kick Off Pride Month.
The KindRED Pride Foundation was inspired by the desire to expand the magic created by the now 29-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 most had only met on a computer bulletin board service and never all in person.
The event quickly grew to one of the largest LGBT+ annual gatherings in the world. The growth was in part a result of the national media exposure brought on by the protests by far-right groups threatening to boycott.

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 and to support endeavors by like-minded charities within the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex, and Ally (LGBTQIA) community by producing sporting, music, and other special events.
The organization is aligning with national, regional, and local non-profits who provide valuable resources to fight bullying, teen homelessness, HIV services, and legal/business/housing services to the LGBT+ community.
Just as on St. Patrick’s Day everyone inclined to express connection to what that day represents by wearing green on March 17th – whether they are Irish or not.
So, the first Saturday of June will continue to be the day that kindred spirits around the world wear RED in solidarity for Diversity, Equality, Inclusion, Safe Expression, and Kindness – RED Shirt Pride Day Around the World! (#RSPD). The goal is to get 1,000,000 or more like-minded people to wear RED on June 1, 2019 no matter where you are in the world.
What better way to kick off Pride Month than people around the world wearing RED as a celebration of life in all of its different colors, shapes, sizes, genders, orientations, nationalities, ages, abilities, and status.
We invite you to help us show solidarity on the first Saturday of every June by wearing RED! (#RSPD)
