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.

 

Upcoming Events at Queens Pride House

FREE HIV testing @ Queens Pride House

The Hispanic AIDS Forum (HAF) will be offering FREE HIV testing & counseling at Queens Pride House. HAF will have its mobile testing unit on site. Everyone is welcome to get tested. No appointment is necessary. For more information please call Lyndsey at 718-429-5309.

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.

Holiday Cookie Decorating
Saturday, Dec. 16, 2-5pm, FREE

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

Queens Pride House is a non-profit organization based in the borough of Queens in New York City, New York. Founded in 1997, QPH serves the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans communities in Queens in their full diversity by increasing access to LGBT-friendly resources, heightening political awareness, building community, and advocating for more comprehensive services. In July 2006 we entered into a new collaborative called the Diversity Center of Queens and moved to Jackson Heights. The Diversity Center of Queens is made up of three organizations: The Humanist Center, Andolan - Organizing South Asian Workers, and Queens Pride House.

Queens Pride House continues to house Queer Links, our resource and health referral program. Carlos Arboleda, our recent past Program Coordinator, has ended his time with QPH and will be missed. Thank you, Carlos, for your dedication to QPH!  Our new Program Coordinator is Lyndsey Beutin. Our Board President and volunteer acting Executive Director is Charles Ober.
