The mission of the Pride Center of the Capital Region is to promote the wellbeing of all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-identified people and those affected by discrimination based on gender identity and expression.
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.
