The International Pride Softball (formally NAGAAA) was created in 1977 to be a non-profit, international organization comprised of men and women dedicated to promoting amateur athletics specifically for the gay and lesbian community. In 2023 NAGAAA rebranded itself as the International Pride Softball (I Pride) to encourage and promote the participation of gay men and women in organized softball competition across the globe. Currently, 54 cities that make up the membership of International Pride Softball in the United States and Canada. In the 2023 Winter Meetings held in Minneapolis, International Pride Softball welcomed Pittsburg, PA and Cincinatti, OH as new member cities. The Denver Area Softball League (DASL) is the only International Pride Softball member organization in Denver and in Colorado. 2024 will be an exciting year for International Pride Softball as the organization will be celebrating its 47th Anniversary and will be hosting the 2024 GSWS in Las Vegas, NV come October 14 - October 19.
There is one division in International Pride Softball: Open Division. In the Open division, teams may be comprised of both men and women. The Open division is divided into seven subdivisions: A, B, C, D, E, Masters C and Masters D. These subdivisions pertain to the competitive level of play; "A" being the most competitive and "E " the least (hence called "recreational").
International Pride Softball provides leagues with the opportunity to travel to member cities in order to meet and compete with LGBTQ+ athletes from across North America. Some join for the competition while others for the socials and networking potentials. In its annual spring meetings, usually held in February, International Pride Softball informs member cities of upcoming tournaments among its membership, paramount amongst these tournaments is the Gay Softball World Series (GSWS) held each year in a different member city of International Pride Softball. Every member league is encouraged to send at least one team to each GSWS as its representative.
