The Grand Rapids Pride Center (GRPC) since 1988 has been empowering the LGBTQ community in Grand Rapids and West Michigan. Turning 30 in 2018, GRPC offers 10 different social support groups, including Youth, Young Adult, Parents, Family, Men’s, Women’s, Own Your Gender, Cross-Dresser, and our new Queer & Trans Youth of Color group.

In addition to their social and support groups, GRPC offers study areas and access to educational materials for any member of our community, creating safe spaces for those who may not have one. There are also several events organized by GRPC during the year, including Transgender Day of Remembrance and Transgender Day of Visibility, health service and advocacy events, which allow members of the LGBTQ community and the community at large to come out, be present, and represent an inclusive and diverse Grand Rapids community.

Why is the Grand Army supporting the GR Pride Center?

Every service that the GR Pride Center provides to the community is free of charge, so they operate on a very tight budget. Supporting the GR Pride Center means supporting our community. We all have friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. who are members of the LGBT community. Some of those individuals may not be out yet. In addition to supporting our club, we want to be a group that is proactively inclusive!

The Grand Army is counting all GRFC goals scored during home matches during the month of June, five men’s games and two women’s games. Make a per-goal pledge now, at the end of June after the final goal total, make your donation to the GR Pride Center.
