Miami's LGBTQ Community Center

Spotlight

On March 23rd, Pridelines took part in the FL AIDS Walk and Music Festival. The event drew thousands of participants who joined forces to raise funds for numerous benefiting agencies across South Florida. Pridelines was once again selected to participate in the walk and music festival and brought in over 50 team members who joined us on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The event brings awareness to agencies working to provide valuable services to individuals living with or affected by HIV/AIDS and raises crucial funds that directly impact the agency's work. 

Pridelines recently participated in the “100-Day Challenge to end Youth Homelessness in Miami. “The 100-Day Challenge is designed to empower and support front-line teams in pursuit of an ambitious 100-Day Goal. This methodology was pioneered by Rapid Results Institute (RRI) and has been used in communities and governments around the world to tackle complex social issues.

Pridelines started 2019 off with the generous help of the FIU LGBTQA Initiative, UM LGBTQ Student Center, and Aqua Foundation for Women who came to Pridelines for a day of service, and what a wonderful job they did. With a total of 38 FIU students, staff members, and community volunteers, the LGBTQA initiative came to help with a few hands-on tasks in and around the community center. The group cleared the back garden area, collecting and removing all trash, fallen fruit, and palm fronds from the ground, as well as swept and washed the back patio.

REACH (Remembering to Empower Ourselves to take Action in our Community and generate Hope for the future) is a SAMHSA-funded program at Pridelines that promotes sexual and mental health for young gay and bi men of color ages 17 to 24. REACH is coordinated by Williamson "Tboy" Bellot, our Peer Navigator, and a core group of young men who work with Tboy to plan activities.
