The Pride Center envisions an LGBTQ community in which individuals feel safe, secure and affirmed where they live, work, worship, and play. The Pride Center will be an integrated part of the social fabric of the Capital Region, nurtured by those we have served.
We commit ourselves to sustain an inclusive, welcoming community characterized by dignity and sensitivity, representing the cultural, ethnic and racial diversity of our region.
Based in Albany, the Pride Center has been meeting the diverse needs of LGBTQ people in a ten-county region since 1970.
We are the oldest continuously operating LGBTQ center in the country. Our programs, both at the Center (332 Hudson Ave. in Albany) as well as held throughout the region, meet the health and human service needs of the LGBTQ community as well as educate and advocate for those needs in the broader Capital Region. As the oldest continuously-operating LGBTQ community center in the country, the Pride Center has worked to build a welcoming and empowering community for all people.
