The PCSO offers community resources, a monthly magazine, social media, and a GLBTQQIA+ library
The PCSO organizes, participates, and collaborates in distinct visibility activities such as Lexington’s annual Pride Festival.
The PCSO spear-heads vital programming such as the Gay-Straight Alliance for Youth, discussion groups and a safe environment at the Pride Center.
The Pride Community Services Organization (PCSO) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Lexington, KY that strives to improve the quality of GLBTQQIA individuals’ lives in Central and Eastern Kentucky.
The PCSO operates the only Pride Center in Kentucky, which is often utilized as a free meeting space for GLBTQQIA organizations in the community. For more than 30 years a monthly newsletter, which is now LinQ magazine, has been published and distributed all over Kentucky. And for the past few years, the PCSO has planned and executed the Lexington Pride Festival with help from many wonderful volunteers from the community.
Seasoned Independent People (SIP) is a social group made up of individuals who are 50+ and/or are friends and allies of LGBT seniors. The group currently meets at 7:00pm on the third Friday of each month at the GLSO Pride Center for a potluck meal and camaraderie.
The group also plans to meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm for socializing as well as for planning various trips, outings, and events.
The Lexington Gay/Straight Alliance is a place where LGBTQ* youth can be themselves and get the support and empowerment they need to become their best selves. We have meetings every Tuesday night from 6-8pm at the GLSO Pride Center.
In addition to our regular meetings, we host annual events like the Pride Prom, Halloween Dance, and a trip to King’s Island during Pride Night. Thanks to a grant from JustFundKY, we provide leadership training to LGBTQ* student leaders with the hope of preparing them to become active citizens.
