The mission of the Brooklyn Community Pride Center is to provide a safe, common space offering physical and mental health services, social support, recreational and cultural programming, as well as being a hub of information for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals and families in Brooklyn.
Through promotion of the empowerment, development, and general welfare of the LGBT community with emphasis on gender, racial, and ethnic parity, we are committed to affecting positive change within our Borough, and the community at large.
