Pridelines is Safety, its a place where you can be whoever you want, whenever you want. There is no judgement, no one questions you, they just accept you with open arms and big smiles. The work that Pridelines does is very important, the young people that they serve depend on them for food, clothing, bus cards, etc. I have never seem a more dedicated and passionate team.
Great organization! I love the work that Pridelines does for the community. Especially their Health Services department who have great, competent and safe staff that provide HIV/STI Testing.
As a current intern, I can say that everyone at Pridelines has a sense of genuineness, pride, and devotion and overall feels like one big family unit. The atmosphere also feels like a home setting and the services provided for the community brings a sense of togetherness. I’m glad I made my choice at Pridelines.
I was coming to Pridelines long before I understood my own identity (way back in high school and college). In the late 90's, Pridelines was the only place that many of my friends could be themselves; I was so grateful for the space that was provided for them, and for the fact that they often brought me along (even though I was just the "straight tomboy"). I will never forget those "Gay Prom" years -- Temple Israel packed wall-to-wall with youth, TP Lords, The Real World -- great memories!
Now, many years later, I get the honor and privilege to work for this agency every day. Watching Pridelines grow into the community Center that it is now has been really inspiring. I am so thankful for our history, for the work that was done then, for the work that is done now, and for the many ways that I've gotten to participate over the years.
As a volunteer it was difficult to find a nonprofit that supported causes I am passionate about. After a friend of mine referred me to Pridelines I decided to check out the place for myself. Needless to say I was not disappointed, the staff are friendly, the environment is clean and comforting, and they are very involved with their community. I spoke to a couple of staff members and volunteers and decided to become a volunteer myself. Pridelines is a safe space for people like myself and I could not be more happy with the way I am treated as a volunteer and member of the LGBTQ+ community.
I've been a fan/supporter of Pridelines for over a decade. I get so much pleasure out of watching them grow and succeed. As they continue to grow, they do so with youth in mind -
always. From their fabulous fundraisers like the Masquerade Ball to hosting CampOUT for LGBTQ youth, they've always been there for LGBTQ youth in any way that they need support. With this new center, young people can even take showers and have access to free clothing and daily meals. This is why I will always be a donor. You can actually see where your money is going. To the entire team, keep up the good work!!
