PrideCenter of St. Louis


PrideCenter

Pride St. Louis is excited to bring a new LGBTQIA+ center to the region. The Pride St. Louis office, located at 3738 Chouteau, was decided to be a good location and layout to serve as a community center. Through the creation of a safer place for people in the community, we hope to expand our role as a community-based leader. The organization successfully opened PrideCenter on Wednesday, January 11th, 2017, but help is still needed to continually provide PrideCenter's services. Any donations, whether items or a monetary contribution, are tax-deductible.

These efforts are also reflected in the theme for PrideFest 2017, “Community Proud”. The annual festival is only a part of the organization’s work each year. Earlier this year, the organization announced the awarding of more than $21,000 in scholarships to eighteen (18) deserving youth. Creation of a community library began in December of 2016, with over a thousand books on LGBTQIA+, feminist, gender, and race topics cataloged for the public to loan. A computer lab, in which individuals can apply for jobs and take online classes, accompanies the library as part of the new center.

PrideCenter is run by the PrideCenter Committee, a subset of Pride St. Louis, and is lead by Co-Chairs Wolf Smith and Landon Brownfield. To contact the PrideCenter administration, email center-admin@pridestl.org.
