LGBTQAI in CapNY

If you are queer and you are considering moving to the Capital Region or just recently started living here, here are some stats to consider:

  1. Albany ranks 66% above the national average for people who self-identify as gay or lesbian (U.S. Census, 2000).  
  2. Human Rights Campaign gave Albany a perfect score on its 2017 Municipal Equality Index, which takes into account non-discrimination laws, hate crimes, pro-equality legislation and a number of other pro-LGBTQ+ indicators.
  3. The Pride Center of the Capital Region is the oldest continuously operating LGBTQ center in the country. Based in Albany, the Pride Center has been meeting the diverse needs of the LGBTQ community since 1970. 
  4. The Pride Center of the Capital Region hosts the Capital Pride Festival, one of the largest celebrations of pride in Upstate New York every June.
