American LGBTQ+ Museum

The American LGBTQ+ Museum is a new museum currently planning its future site (while providing on-line and in-person programs with partners). It received initial funding from the New York City Council, the Mayor’s office, and some key foundations. Led by a newly-hired Executive Director, Ben Garcia, and a small team of staff, it relies heavily on a volunteer planning committee from the fields of academia, art, finance, philanthropy, LGBTQ civil rights, and more. Its future home will be in a new facility shared with the New-York Historical Society and will serve the LGBTQ+ community as well as allies, educators and policy advocates. The space is expected to open on late 2025 and will be primarily for public activity, with a projection of 200,000 annual visitors. The core exhibition will enable visitors to encounter persistent themes in New York City, and national, LGBTQ+ history.

The New Pride Agenda

New York City, NY

The NEW Pride Agenda (NPA) advocates across the State of New York for LBGTQIA rights awareness, particularly for the most vulnerable members of the queer community. Working with a diverse network of communities and elected officials, NPA serves to educate members of the LGBTQIA community and allies, as well as the general public, about our legal protections and rights. NPA engages in local community educational programming with town halls and its Civic Engagement and Public Education Project (CEPEP); its NYS budget and legislative advocacy is advancing a list of policy priorities informed in part by its recent citywide LGBTQIA survey conducted in partnership with Columbia University.
