- Do you need a place where you can be you, with no exceptions and no explanations needed?
- Are you experiencing difficulty relating to others in your family, school, workplace, or surrounding community?
- Would you like to connect with others in the community to share information, resources, and experiences?
Join Grand Rapids Pride Center's Own Your Gender social support group. This group is for those who are gender questioning, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and transgender, identifying inside and outside of the gender binary. For individuals 18 years of age and older.
Crossdressers who do not identify as trans or non-binary are invited to attend Grand Illusions.
Are allies welcome? While Own Your Gender meetings are usually for trans, gender non-conforming, and gender-questioning individuals only, the first group meeting of each quarter is an open door meeting, where friends, family, and allies may attend. See calendar for upcoming dates.

Grand Rapids Pride Center MSW Intern and co-facilitator for the Young Adults Group, Aubree (Aubs) tells us why Black History Month is important to her.
Today more than ever, it is important that we celebrate the acomplishments made by the LGBTQ Black and African American community. It is past time for us to awkwnowledge these civil rights activists, pioneers, and outspoken leaders, so that they are no longer left out of our shared history. Their contributions and sacrifices have led us to where we are today.

We are OVERJOYED! Tuesday's fundraising event for youth programming at the GRPC generated over $1300! We are so grateful for our partners at The B.O.B. who made this possible, and for all who attended!
The Grand Rapids Public Library is thrilled to be doing a series of guest posts for the GR Pride Center! Once a month, Library staff will be sharing their recommendations of new and interesting LGBTQ materials. We love talking about books, movies, how to get that streaming music onto your phone or tablet, what the best diverse graphic novel is of the month and so much more! Some of the titles we recommend may also be available through the Pride Center’s Library collection. Check it out by visiting or going to their Learning Center .
