Dear Community Family,
We hope you, and those you love and care about, are staying safe.
We are very excited to announce that this Sunday, April 26, Pride Community Center is partnering with CenterLink and GLAAD to present “Together in Pride: You Are Not Alone,” a star studded livestream event to bring the LGBTQ community together and honor our heroes during COVID-19. We’ll also raise important funds for CenterLink and its network of over 250 local community centers in the U.S. and around the world. A portion of the money raised will go directly to Pride Community Center

LGBTQ community centers, including Pride Comunity Center, serve as safe spaces for nearly 40,000 LGBTQ people each week and 2 million people each year. During the epidemic, LGBTQ community centers are still providing critical services such as medical care, mental health counseling, virtual support groups, filling prescriptions, providing hot meals and check-in phone calls for older adults, serving as shelters for homeless youth, distributing nonperishable food items and hygiene products, case management, HIV testing, and hosting virtual engagement activities to decrease social isolation. Given the current financial crisis and loss of revenue, LGBT community centers could be forced to shrink our services, meaning tens of thousands of LGBTQ people could go without care.
We hope you will tune in to support us and our partner LGBTQ+ community centers. Stay safe and stay healthy.
