The San Mateo County Pride Center is a program of StarVista in collaboration with Daly City Partnership, Outlet of Adolescent Counseling Services, and Peninsula Family Service.
LGBTQ+ people have always been in San Mateo County. We are your employees, co-workers, neighbors, siblings, and friends. Never before has there been an LGBTQ+ Pride Center in San Mateo County to support the community. We are the first Pride Center in the County! LGBTQ+ people are more likely to face mental health challenges because of isolation, discrimination and the stigmatization of queer relationships and LGBTQ+ identities. Our center was created to fill gaps in affirming services for the LGBTQ+ community. At the Pride Center, we connect people to community resources, create community-building activities and provide therapy with skilled clinicians.
This Prom came about from community requests to reclaim the prom experience for people who didn’t have the chance to be their authentic selves in the past, and who are ready to celebrate now!
