"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

Harlem Pride
PETITION: Harlem Needs A Community Pride Center (New York City)

Official Website: HarlemPride.org

Harlem needs A Community PRIDE Center.  There are many reasons why this need is evident:

  • Though home to the city’s second largest SGL/LGBT community outside of Brooklyn, Harlem is without a Community PRIDE Center that serves the needs of the diverse Same Gender Loving and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community in this area.
  • There is an expressed hesitancy, difficulty or inability of Harlem’s SGL/LGBT community to travel to other Community PRIDE locations.  This is particularly true of the elderly and youth.
  • There already exists a growing sense of PRIDE and opportunity in our community.  A Community PRIDE Center would enable us to tailor programs to the specific needs of our Uptown population.
  • The long-standing history of Harlem’s SGL/LGBT community should not be forgotten, and the contributions of its current residents should be celebrated.

Please help Harlem Pride continue to the push to bring Harlem its very own Community Pride Center by signing their newly created online petition. Lending your voice to this effort is absolutely pivotal in making this dream a reality.

PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION if you feel that it's time for Harlem to have a Community PRIDE Center.  

ALSO, please help spread the word via your social networks.

Thank you,
Harlem Pride, Inc.

About Harlem Pride...
In 2010, Harlem Pride's founders saw an opportunity to celebrate not just our SGL (Same Gender Loving) & LGBT community, but its role and contributions to Harlem's rich history and thus Harlem Pride was born. Our mission is to promote Same Gender Loving & Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender pride in Harlem and to provide opportunities for networking and communication among its SGL & LGBT organizations and community members. These opportunities are organized for and on behalf of all Same Gender Loving & Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender individuals and groups, and all others who support the struggle for the liberation of these communities. We invite the participation of all, regardless of age, creed, gender, gender identification, HIV status, national origin, physical, mental or developmental ability, race, religion or sexual origin.

The inaugural Harlem Pride Day Celebration was held on W. 119th Street between Lenox and Fifth Avenues, on Saturday, June 26, 2010 and hosted over three-thousand guests. Each year, during the last weekend in June, our pride celebration will consist of a VIP Launch Party on Friday, a Harlem Pride Day Celebration on Saturday, and a Harlem Pride Family Day on Sunday.

Since 2010, Harlem Pride has expanded to include monthly seminars and workshops, social events, and other community outreach activities.

Harlem Pride was incorporated in New York State as a Not-For-Profit Corporation in 2010, and received its retroactive 501(c)(3) tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service in 2011. Harlem Pride is a Registered Charity in New York State. All donations are Tax Deductible.
