Mission & Vision


Our vision is a strong, LGBTQ Mississippi united by common values, while respecting each of our unique individual experiences. By strategically connecting individuals and institutions we hope to empower those most impacted by discrimination, isolation, or bigotry. By developing broad leadership we hope to inspire our community to reach its full potential. By celebrating our history we help insure a better future for all people.


Unity Mississippi is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, and awareness purposes, more specifically: The purpose of Unity Mississippi is to establish and promote unity among the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (GLBT) and Heterosexual communities by serving as the catalyst for statewide education, interaction, entertainment, community growth, visibility and awareness. Unity Mississippi is dedicated to promoting tolerance and acceptance of sexual minorities, increasing public awareness of minority-related concerns, health-related concerns (specifically HIV/AIDS and substance abuse), and bridging the gap between the heterosexual and GLBT communities in the State of Mississippi.
