The GLCC/Pride Center was founded in 1993 by philanthropist and gay pioneer, Alan Schubert. Alan recognized the need for a comprehensive program of services to support the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, primarily in Broward County. The GLCC/Pride Center, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, was established and now serves as a source for information, education, advocacy and support. It provides a positive environment that fosters personal development and quality of life for those within the community it serves.
GLCC/Pride Center Mission Statement: We provide a welcoming, safe space—an inclusive home that celebrates, nurtures and empowers the LGBTQ communities and our friends and neighbors in South Florida.
