Pride Fans was inspired during an annual friends trip to Andalucía, Spain, where expressing yourself with a folding hand fan is a cultural norm. One morning while recounting an epic night of the trip—which involved hours of fan snapping and dancing—an idea was born to create a festive hand fan for LGBTQ pride events. We wanted to make something that would resonate with the celebration, the event goer, and the community—and so the Pride Fan was born.
In 2013, we made our debut at several gay pride events throughout Florida, U.S., with an uplifting fanfare that took off. Since then, Pride Fans has expanded and can be found at numerous LGBTQ+ events, and arts & music festivals.
Based in Orlando, FL, Pride Fans was founded on the principle of believing in yourself, celebrating who you are, and reaching back to help others move forward. Thanks to fans like you, together we support and stand in solidarity with the amazing people and organizations standing up for equal human rights for all—all while keeping you cool at the hottest events!
