For 19 years Peoplehood has celebrated and honored those living and working at the forefront of anti-oppression and anti-discrimination work. In our 19th year we are partnering with Philadelphia Trans March – centering and honoring trans lives at the front of the parade with the invitation to ALL to join in representing yourselves, your group, your personal cause, and marching in solidarity.

  • Move in the parade! March with us, walk with us, roll through the streets with us! Wheelchairs, bicycles and strollers are welcome (but motorized vehicles are not. We are people-powered).
  • Bring your own banners, signs and artwork, or create something new!
  • You can choose to join a Spiral Q art section!
  • The parade will culminate in Clark Park with performances in honor of our theme.

Contact Liza at if you have any questions or to register your group. And please help us spread the word! Individuals, groups of friends and family can drop in and join the parade (no registration necessary, but you can register if you’re so inclined!). The more people, the stronger the Peoplehood. Please note: the parade route is roughly 1.25 miles. If you want to move in the parade and have limited mobility, meet us along the parade route! Fill out the form above and we’ll be in touch.
