Queens Pride House
Queens Pride House (QPH), a center for the LGBT communities of Queens, was established in Queens Borough Hall in September 1997 to provide for the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people in the borough. In May of 2001, we opened our current site in Woodside. Queens Pride House also houses Queer Links, our resource referral program. Carlos Arboleda is to be replaced with our new Program Coordinator: Lyndsey Beutin. Carlos Arboleda, our recent past coordinator, continues as program consultant. Our President and volunteer acting executive director Charles Ober.
In 2001 Queens Pride House moved to a storefront in Woodside and in July 2006 we moved to the current address. We signed a new lease and then entered into a new collaborative center naming it Diversity Center of Queens in partnership with two sub-tenants: Humanist Center and Andolan - Organizing South Asian Workers.

FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIES—Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Fri. Dec. 15, 7:30pm, FREE
Join Queens Pride House for a cozy Friday evening. We will be beating the cold by snuggling up with a cult classic movie, munching on popcorn and hot cocoa, and making new friends. Bring a snack to share or your favorite pillow if you like--it is all free! Snacks and socializing start at 7:30. Movies start at 8.
Dec. 15 we will be showing John Cameron Mitchell’s infamous, Hedwig and The Angry Inch. Hedwig, born a boy named Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American G.I. and underwent a sex-change operation in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to - years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the U.S., telling her life story through a series of concerts at Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants. Her tour dates coincide with those of arena-rock star Tommy Gnosis, a wide-eyed boy who once loved Hedwig... but then left with all her songs.
Come join other QPHers and decorate some home-made cut-out cookies. QPH will provide the cookies and the toppings, you provide the creativity. The best part is you get to take home and eat your creations. Feel free to drop-in briefly or stay the whole time.
For more information about any of these events, please call 718-429-5309 or email Lbeutin@queenspridehouse.org
