Founded in 1997, Queens Pride House is located in Jackson Heights where the needs for immigrants empowerment and community building is tremendous. This need led the founders of Queens Pride House in July 2006 to create the Diversity Center of Queens, as a collaborative venture to bring together grassroots community organizers, activists and organizations to fight against injustice, discriminations and all forms of volence.
Over the past 10 years, QPH has directly impacted the lives of thousands of community members, as well as business & educational institutions, health care institutions, community based organizations, and political and civic leaders. Some of our accomplishments include:
•Providing over 3,000 health referrals since 2001
•Heightening our community's awareness about public health issues by distributing over 5,000 pamphlets since 2002
•Involving over 4,000 participants in our educational & social events since 2002
•Organizing the wildly popular Annual Queens Queer Cultural Festival for the past 5 years
•Successfully advocating for additional resources for LGBT programs from NYC & NYS elected officials in 2006
