Kingston, NY

Mission

As a safe, supportive environment, the Hudson Valley LGTBQ Community Center provides services, professional resources, and programs that unite the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community across lines of age, race, gender, and economics. Our purpose is to strengthen, support, and celebrate LGBTQ individuals, families, and groups in their efforts to achieve their fullest potential.

The Center strives for positive social change through advocacy, community education, cultural awareness, and wellness programs that assist in the creation, development, and growth of LGBTQ affirming organizations, institutions, and culture within the community at large.

Notes from the Nonprofit

In February 2004 the same-sex weddings in New Paltz pushed the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community to the forefront of the media. We recognize ourselves as a large and diverse group within the larger Hudson Valley community.

In June of 2005 the New Paltz Pride March and Festival (which became the Hudson Valley Pride March and Festival) added to this momentum, bringing together a small group of committed people who laid the groundwork for the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center.

In July 2005, these dedicated organizers used their vision of a better community to become the founders of the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center and began the work of building a Center for the whole community.

On February 3, 2007, we opened the doors of the Community Center’s headquarters building at 300 Wall Street in Kingston. We’ve continued to grow ever since.
