It is remarkable what you’re able to do when you have the support you need. When I joined Cycle for the Cause, The Center’s 275 mile Northeast AIDS Ride, I genuinely did not think I would be able to do it—and by the end, I rode every single mile! That was only possible because of The Center’s support from start to finish. I can’t stop thinking about it. And I wonder to myself: “What else have I assumed I could not do? Maybe I just didn’t have the support I needed to try.” The Center has rearranged my thoughts on what I’m capable of with the right support.

When I think of The Center’s broader role in New York’s LGBTQ+ community, I’m reminded of when it was founded—the events that required cataclysmic change, the need for people to speak up, come together, and build the support they needed to survive. The fact that The Center is still here today means that the needs of our community are constantly changing and ever present.

Our identities as LGBTQ+ people can impact every part of our lives—which is why it is so important for our community to have access to resources to help us holistically thrive. You can find them at The Center. Some organizations do one thing, and they do that one thing really well. But over the course of its 40 year history, The Center has proven it can be the one stop shop for our whole identities. When I share my love of The Center with my friends, colleagues, and family, it’s hard to encapsulate everything that The Center does for LGBTQ+ New Yorkers without it sounding impossible. What a place!
