Description:

QLGPC is Queens' largest multi-service lesbian and gay rights organization. QLGPC disseminates information about, and fosters knowledge and understanding of, the culture of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. We educate the public about the history of the movement for self-respect and equal treatment for people of same gender attraction. We create and support activities commemorating events of importance within the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities. We produce the annual Queens Lesbian and Gay Pride Parade and Multicultural Festival as one of the main vehicles to achieve our goals. Additionally, we create, sponsor and support social service programs dedicated to improving the social, emotional, physical and educational well being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, their family and friends within a safe space.
