HUDSON VALLEY LGBTQ CENTER

As a safe, supportive environment, the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center provides services, professional resources, and programs that unite the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning 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.

Services for Youth and Families

The Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center has many opportunities for youth and families to build community, find resources, and grow together.


The Hudson Valley Queer Youth Project organizes a monthly teen night for all LGBTQ and allied youth ages 12-19. Teennights features music, dances, workshops, artmaking, and friends. Suggested donation is $5 but no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.

Every third Friday, 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

TRANSGENDER DAY OF REMEMBRANCE (TDOR)

Every year on November 20, the Center holds a vigil to mark Transgender Day of Remembrance. The annual observance honors those who have lost their lives due to anti-transgender violence. More info about international events and the history of TDOR can be found here.

The day caps off Transgender Awareness Week (November 14–20), which seeks to expand understanding of trans and gender nonbinary individuals.
