We believe the world is better when people feel safe to express themselves as their most authentic selves. When people embrace their truths out loud, it helps us all gain the confidence to break free of the bounds of our own societally or mentally-made boxes. Those who are openly queer or transgender remind us that there is a feeling of being truly ALIVE in loving who you love, presenting yourself how you want, and identifying as you choose.
Pride celebrates the LGBTQ+ community, and it's a great yearly reminder that living authentically should be possible and protected for everyone, everywhere. We are grateful for our LGBTQ+ team members, family members, and community, and we will work hard to ensure the beauty that makes you, YOU, is safe and protected. This June, we’re taking the opportunity to celebrate Pride by donating $15,000 to The LGBT Center in New York.
The LGBT Center has been a home and resource hub for the LGBTQ+ community, NYC residents and visitors since 1983. They provide a place to connect and engage, find camaraderie and support, and celebrate the vibrancy and growth of the LGBTQ+ community.
Established as a result of the AIDS crisis, New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center has grown and evolved over the last four decades, creating and delivering services that empower people to lead healthy, successful lives. They currently operate in-person and virtually, providing recovery and wellness programs, economic advancement initiatives, family and youth support, advocacy, arts and cultural events, and space for community organizing and connection.
