We Are The Pride Center
of Maryland (PCOM)

PCOM is the state's primary source for guidance, education, cultural competency, and services to improve quality of life, especially for LGBTQ+/SGL (same-gender-loving) youth, adults, elders, and allies of all backgrounds, ethnicities, perspectives, genders, sexualities, and cultures.
 
Through youth development, mental health, violence prevention, support services, and trauma-informed care programs, PCOM advocates for equity, justice, and safe access to well-being and protection while building bridges and understanding between diverse communities.

Welcome to The PRIDE Center of Maryland

A safe, supportive, reliable, and empowering home

for Maryland's diverse sexualities and gender nuanced

communities.
