Community Church (MCC) and becoming an organizer for San Diego Pride in 1977. Moore has been credited with helping to institutionalize
Pride, both in San Diego and across the globe. Moore worked with other LGBT activists in Boston to create the National Association
of Gay and Lesbian Pride, with first met in 1983 with 6 founding cities (San Diego, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, San Francisco,
and Chicago). The organization went on to become InterPride, the International Association of Lesbian/Gay [Bisexual and Transgender]
Pride Coordinators (IAL/GPC). InterPride would go on to bring Pride parades and festivals to places around the country and
around the world. Moore was committed to the preservation of the history of Pride, compiling an extensive collection of Pride
materials from around the globe, including t-shirts, posters, photographs, buttons, pins, programs, banners, and founding
materials of major LGBT Pride organizations.
