DESTINATION TOMORROW, TO OPEN THE BRONX LGBTQ CENTER

Bronx, New York (August 15, 2018) – Destination Tomorrow is pleased to announce the opening of the new Bronx LGBTQ Center.  With funding secured from the New York City Council, DT has moved into a 9,000 square foot space located at 448 – 452 East 149th Street, Bronx NY 10455.  Many will recognize this address as the old Bronx Pride.  We are pleased to be able to move our community back home, to the only LGBTQ Center the Bronx has known.     

In 2012 the only LGBTQ Center in the Bronx closed, leaving many community members without an affirming space to relax, obtain services or get involved with LGBTQ happenings in the Borough. Looking to fill this void, DT began offering services for TGNC community members and LGBTQ youth.  With the new Bronx LGBTQ Center, DT will be able to expand its services as well as the times and frequency they are offered. With an eye to the growing LGBTQ community in the Bronx, our goal is to offer a true community center. The new Bronx LGBTQ Center will host cultural and arts events, support groups, a free computer lab and HIV testing and counseling.  DT has always had an economic empowerment model and the Bronx LGBTQ Center will continue that model.

Mr. Coleman, the Executive Director of Destination Tomorrow stated “Bronx Pride is back and better than ever.  This new center will be instrumental in connecting the Bronx LGBTQ community to the vast resources available in the borough”.   

About Destination Tomorrow – The Bronx LGBTQ Center

Destination Tomorrow is a grassroots agency located in the South Bronx that provides services to and for the LGBTQ community. It is our belief that no one should have to leave their neighborhood to access LGBTQ specific services. It is our belief that all LGBTQ young people deserve a space to grow, learn and flourish. It is our belief that people, regardless of their sexual identity or gender expression deserve a space they can call their own.

Destination Tomorrow has comprehensive programs and services both in-house and referral based. We also offer capacity building to agencies who wish to work with LGBTQ communities but lack the cultural competency and expertise. We strive for excellence as an agency and for our community settings.
