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, 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.

Providing direct and peer-related services since we opened our doors in 1970.

Through a combination of support and education the Pride Center of the Capital Region programs, groups, and events directly serve 37,000 people every year. For almost 50 years the Pride Centers programs and services meet the needs of our diverse community throughout their lifespan, as well as educate the broader community on these unique needs
