Miami's LGBTQ Community Center


Our Youth Programs and Services held it’s 24th Annual LGBTQ Prom at UNIDAD on Miami Beach on July 13, 2019. This event was powered wit

The Network is Pridelines' very own young professionals network that aims to foster philanthropy and build relationships through volunteerism and social events that strengthen and empower South Florida's LGBTQ community. Much more than just a networking opportunity, The Network is geared towards individuals between 25 and 39 who are looking to make an impact in their community. So far The Network has held three events: a networker in Coral Gables at House Kitchen and Bar, a networker in Miami at The New Yorker Hotel and an open house at Pridelines Community Center in Miami.

The last six months have been a time of new growth for one of our newer health services programs: The League of Extraordinary Transgender Women. The League was created as a support network for transgender women, especially Black transgender women, and also provides opportunities for leadership training and development.

At Pridelines, we rely on volunteers to help us in all aspects of our work. From answering the phones and greeting guests as they visit our community centers to preparing meals, sorting donations, providing holistic therapies and mental health counseling, and facilitating groups, we could not do it without the dedicated people who donate their time to us each year. For this blog post we asked Ken Demsey, Pridelines’ Volunteer Coordinator, to share his experience volunteering with the agency.

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.
