Family Pride

Family Pride is dedicated to helping LGBTQ families in the Capital Region achieve their goals of building and sustaining healthy and happy families by increasing visibility of non-traditional families, providing monthly social opportunities and building leadership and empowerment through engaging parents and children in the planning process!


Center Families

Every 4th SUNDAY of the month
Time and location vary each month
Center Families works to empower LGBTQ families, allies and their children throughout the Capital Region. If you identify as LGBTQ and are raising children, providing care, or just supporting youth you love, join us for fun monthly social outings where you can find connection with other LGBTQ adults, and provide LGBTQ affirming environments for the children you love. We would love for you to join us in the park or partake in the planning of future social events; whatever role you want to play, we have a space for you!

For additional information, please contact us at programs@capitalpridecenter.org or call our office at (518) 462-6138.
