2020 Recurring Annual Fund Donations
The world changed in March, and the New Haven Pride Center changed with it, transitioning much of our programming online while always remaining a resource for our community.
Homophobia, Biphobia, and transphobia thrive in isolation, and the most vulnerable of us are those who are especially isolated. Cultural programming like Queerflix & Chill virtual movie nights as well as services like a call-or-text warm line provide a vital lifeline to our community by breaking that isolation and providing a sense of normalcy. Ongoing support and social groups provide a space for collectively processing all the emotions of this difficult time. We're providing for our community materially as well, paying performers for a biweekly series of Drag Artist Story Hour videos and commissioning artists to design colouring book pages. The New Haven Pride Center is navigating the present with an eye to the future. We have not cut staff and are continuing to adapt to the long emergency, finding new ways of serving our community.
