CDTC envisions a more equitable future for open lands: one in which all people are able to enjoy all the benefits of the Continental Divide landscape. Pride on the Divide recognizes that Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Intersex, Asexual, and other members of the Queer Community are an integral part of the past, present, and future of the CDT community. This initiative is intended to be a reflection of all people who actively engage in the stewardship and enjoyment of the CDT experience.
Share Your Story
We want to hear from you! CDTC knows that the CDT holds a feeling of joy, transformation, connectedness, and community for many of the 2SLGBTQIA+ who travel the CDT tread, live in CDT communities, and steward the trail. We want to elevate and celebrate the stories and perspectives that illustrate why the CDT Experience is one that can be enjoyed by all people.Share

CDTC staff, partners, volunteers, and community ambassadors will host community hikes, picnics, and other ways to engage and connect with other members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Primarily during the summer months, you can find all the Pride on the Divide events happening along the trail.events
Promote Pride on the Divide
Pride on the Divide stickers and postcards are available online in the CDTC online store. Visitor centers, partners, and local businesses in communities along the CDT may also have stickers or postcards available to purchase or distribute, but not guaranteed.
Businesses interested in purchasing a supply of Pride on the Divide stickers and postcards can reach out to: firstname.lastname@example.org.Store
If you have an idea for a Pride on the Divide event in your community, let us know! Events don’t have to be only during Pride months, they can happen any time of the year, and they don’t have to only take place outdoors on the CDT; community-based events are great, too. Reach out with your ideas and we can try to help provide guidance, resources, and promotion to help connect the 2SLGBTQIA+ CDT community in your area.
