Sponsor

With the discussion to form a center for the LGBTQ+ community on September 12, 2000, the mission of the Pride Community Center of North Central Florida (PCCNCF) has been to promote public understanding and acceptance of people of all gender expressions or sexual orientations, regardless of race, ethnic background, nationality, spirituality, age or abilities. The center was created to foster and enhance the wellbeing, unity and visibility of transgender, bisexual, lesbian, and gay persons and people with related concerns. PCCNCF is committed to provide the community with education and resources in an open and supportive environment to eliminate prejudice and discrimination in our neighborhoods.  

In January 2008, the Pride Center merged with Pride Celebration of Gainesville and began producing Gainesville Pride Days, which includes the annual Pride Parade and Festival. In 2018, we also merged with the Gainesville Area AIDS Project (GAAP) and began providing direct services to people with HIV/AIDS.
