About Us

Pride Community Center was founded in 2010 to serve the larger LGBT Bryan/College Station community, as the majority of the existing resources were focused on the students and other members of the university community.

The purpose of the Pride Community Center is to (1) educate the public about sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, (2) advocate for civil rights under law and social equality for the Community, (3) provide resources like cultural services, emotional support, mental health services, health information and avenues for personal growth to enhance self-esteem, (4) strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination against the Community, and (5) develop outreach programs promoting a harmonious relationship between the Community and citizens of the Brazos Valley. The Pride Community Center intends to create a safe space for the Community to assemble for the above-cited purposes free of discrimination, violence, taunting, and fear.
