Blind LGBT Pride International, a special-interest affiliate of the American Council of the Blind (â€ťACBâ€ť), was founded in 1996 when a group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgenderÂ (â€śLGBTâ€ť)and straight allies met at the annual conference and convention of ACB.Â The discussion centered on the needs of those who are blind and vision impaired and LGBT as that need was not being met in any organized national movement for the vision impaired and blind.
In 2000, Blind Friends of Lesbians and Gays (â€śBFLAGâ€ť) was officially chartered in ACB. In 2009 the name was changed to Blind LGBT Pride International to better reflect the purpose and mission of the organization.
The purpose of Blind LGBT Pride International (â€śBlind Prideâ€ť or â€śBPIâ€ť), a 501c(3) organization, is to offer advocacy, education, programs, alliances,and support for persons who are either blind orÂ vision impairedÂ and who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.
