We do the most...

With more than 2.5 million people, Brooklyn is the city's largest borough.

Our 5 full-time staff and posse of fierce volunteers, provide hundreds of programs and activities that only begin to meet the needs of LGBTQ+ Brooklynites.

We would need a total of $1.5 million to have more equitable city funding per capita.

$0.20/resident

$0.55/resident

$0.90/resident

$0.50/resident

$1.30/resident

...with what we've got.

Despite serving NYC's largest LGBTQ+ population, Brooklyn Community Pride Center receives from the city just $0.20 per Brooklynite — the least amount of public funding among NYC's LGBTQ+ community centers.

Health & Wellness Realness

We offer health and wellness resources, including mental health services,MPV vaccinations, 
STD/HIV testing, COVID tests, workshops and more.

As a Community Health Ambassador, I make sure folks at the Pride Center know what resources we have but also bring resources out into our communities throughout Brooklyn.

We provided more than
600 
MPV (monkeypox)
vaccines to the community
--
the most out of all of the NYC
Health + Hospitals pop-up clinics.

Community Building Realness

We are a one-stop shop for LGBTQ+ Brooklynites to find connections to their community through a range of staff and volunteer-led programs, including game nights, creative groups, and community conversations.

I'm a former librarian, so I know a few things about community spaces. I love nothing more than the sense of community and belonging that you feel as soon as you enter the Pride Center.

Elder Group Leader

Arts & Culture Realness

From book talks to exhibitions to poetry workshops, we use art to create, heal, learn, and celebrate Brooklyn's diverse community and shareour stories.

I didn't have much support when I transitioned, but I was able to later process and share of my experience through creative expressions like painting and writing.

Queer Empowerment Realness

We are a convening space for LGBTQ+ leaders, activists,
and change-makers who
are passionate about
racial, trans, and gender justice.

Did you know the Pride Center is represented by three openly queer Black elected officials?
