The LGBT Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is a home and voice for LGBT people, their families, and support systems in Long Island and Queens. Our three LGBT community centers help LGBT people to be themselves, stay healthy, and change the world. Since 1993, we have been pioneering advocacy and social change to create safe space for LGBT people where they live, learn, work, play, and pray.
The Network is spearheading the initiative of mandating the teaching of LGBT history in schools, and hopes that New York will become the fifth state to pass a law pertaining to this matter. Learning about queer heroes such as Harvey Milk, Edie Windsor, Marsha P. Johnson, and Sylvia Rivera is the type of visibility that can make sure a child doesn’t feel alone when it comes to their sexual orientation and gender identity.
