We are a proud and strong community: Pride 2016

On Sunday we marched—no we danced—down 5th Avenue celebrating our Pride. Almost 100 of our clients, staff, and friends, including the Starbucks Pride Alliance, celebrated together… and remembered together.

This video highlights the fun and incredible energy we had yesterday. Marching in Pride is a favorite activity for many of our clients, who ...

How we came together as a community for a cause

Runners at the Harlem One-Miler
More than 400 people ran, walked, skipped, and jogged around Marcus Garvey Park this past Sunday at the second annual Harlem One Miler! Our fastest runner finished in a blazing 4 minutes and 28 seconds. And our fastest female finished the course in just under 5 minutes and 26 seconds. No less impressive were the more than 200 of you who walked and jogged around the course as a family! We were honored to have Ida Keeling, who at 101 years old, set a 100 yard dash record earlier this year, lead our pre-walk stretch. In fact, it was more like a dance party, ...

Getting happy at Pride

June capped off an exciting and event-packed LGBTQ Pride Month for Harlem United. Staff were on-hand at Harlem Pride, Brooklyn Pride, Queens Pride, and New York City Pride to provide rapid HIV testing to Pride-goers and to distribute information and resources for safer sex and HIV/STI prevention.
