2020 Virtual Pride Week is here!

June 1-6, 2020

My Dear Friends,

Triangle Community Center’s 2020 Virtual Pride Week is here!

For the first time in our long history, TCC has embraced a new way of celebrating Pride month as we offer all of our amazing Pride events and entertainment via social media and the web.

Kudos! to the entire TCC team and our Pride Committee as we pivoted from our traditional in-person Pride In The Park event to a unique, all-virtual event for 2020.  Y’all are amazing!

As I reflect upon Pride month and all that it represents for TCC as we also celebrate our 30th Anniversary, I am mindful of the dedicated volunteers who started our organization in 1990 and never wavered from their vision of helping the LGBTQ members of our community most in need.  Their indefatigable service laid the foundation upon which TCC stands today.  Thank you!

During the current health crisis that prompted us to make all of our programs and services virtual due to social distancing restrictions, TCC has seen the largest participation in our history across all groups.  TCC is proud to have been there for the LGBTQ community these past three decades…and we are still here for you today…and we will be there for you always!

From mental health counseling to food and housing assistance to support groups and individualized care programs to fun socials, TCC is where LGBTQ persons and the broader community can always find a safe place with loving staff and volunteers and the programs that enhance your life.

If you need support, would like to join a social group or you would like to make a gift to TCC so we can continue our incredible programs, please check out our website:  ctpridecenter.org

I hope you enjoy TCC’s 2020 Virtual Pride Week presented by Circle Care Center!

With love and gratitude,

Sean-Michael Hazuda

Executive Director
