The Long Island Pride Invitational has a mission to bring together the LGBTQ+ community and allies through the sport of bowling.  We create an inclusive and fun-filled environment where everyone feels welcome, celebrated, and free to be themselves.

Through friendly competition and camaraderie, we aim to break down barriers and promote unity, acceptance, and empowerment for LGBTQ+ individuals.  We believe in the power of sport to foster connections and raise awareness about LGBTQ+ issues.

We prioritize fairness, respect, and diversity in everything we do, ensuring that bowlers of all skill levels and backgrounds can participate and have a great time.  Additionally, we're proud to partner with local charities to extend our impact and support the LGBTQ+ community beyond the tournament.

Join us at The Long Island Pride Invitational as we roll with pride and purpose, celebrating diversity and creating a positive and inclusive space for all.  Together, we can make a difference and have a blast doing it!
