Group Description

Black Pride NYC, Inc. (a.k.a. BPNYC Inc.) is an organization that serves Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender ("LGBT") people of African descent by providing, on a year round basis, educational seminars and cultural events that are vital to the resilience and vitality of the community. These human services programs seek to arm participants with the tools to respond to and withstand the stresses of prejudice, discrimination, bigotry, violence and poor health prevalent in the LGBT community of African descent.

With the continued support of the community both financially and with volunteerism, Black Pride NYC, Inc. will continue to grow.

The Black Pride NYC, Inc. mission is to promote empowerment of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community of African descent. BPNYC is established to:

* Expand the community based organizations support network.

* Broaden support of local artisans.
* Foster institutional research.
* Increase and sustain economic self sufficiency.
* Create "Safe Spaces" within the LGBT community.

The last formally sponsored BlackPrideNYC event in 2004, no other organization has ever been as effective as giving back to the community like Pinckney & Saunders. At a minimum, the calendar of events with continue to be amended to honoring the many Black men & women who've secured our future! Mailings from the group will most likely announce anniversaries and birthdays of remarkable people/ events.
