The Pagan Pride Project (PPP) coordinates celebrations that are sponsored by local groups in various places throughout North America and elsewhere in the world. They are held nnually, within two or three weeks of the Autumn Equinox.
The term "Pagan Pride" was apparently inspired by the Gay Pride movement. The project was founded by Cecylyna Brightsword (now Cecylyna Dewr). She proposed celebrations involving a public ritual open to the public, press releases and public relations activities to encourage a positive portrayal of Paganism in the media, and a materials drive for a local charity -- typically a food bank, shelter or refuge.
The first Pagan Pride Day was held on 1998-SEP-19 with 18 celebrations. By 2003, this had grown to over 117 events. Celebrations in 2004 involved over 44,000 people attending Pagan Pride events in six countries. They collected almost 15 tons of food and almost $10,000 for local charities.
