PRIDE CENTER TEMPORARILY CLOSED – PLEASE READ

Given the ongoing health concerns around the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and our commitment to keeping all of us as safe as possible, the Board of Directors and the Pride Center staff have made the difficult yet necessary decision to temporarily close the Pride Center of the Capital Region.

Effective immediately, the Pride Center of the Capital Region is suspending all support groups, events, and drop-in hours until further notice.

We will use digital forms of communication to make sure we all stay connected.

How you can reach the Pride Center:

  • Call us at 518-462-6138 and leave a message. We will call you back as quickly as possible.
  • Email us at info@capitalpridecenter.org, and your message will be forwarded to the right person.
  • Message us on Facebook or Instagram, which we will be checking regularly.

We apologize for this disruption of services, particularly to those who depend on us most. Please know that we are doing everything in our power to ensure that you can connect with us remotely as we navigate this uncertain situation together.

++Anonymous meetings held at the Pride Center are non-affiliated, independent groups.
