The mission of the San Joaquin Pride Center is to serve the diverse LGBTQ+ communities in San Joaquin County and the surrounding areas by creating a safe and welcoming space. We provide resources that enrich the body, mind and spirit, and educate the public in affirming ways, nurture and show respect for all people within the LGBTQ+ community.
Founded in June 2011 and opened in October 2011, the San Joaquin Pride Center strives to provide the community with LGBTQ+ resources and support in a friendly, welcoming, and accessible environment. We are located on Yosemite Street Village, inside the old 49er Pharmacy next to China Village on the 900 block of Yosemite Street between Acacia and Poplar. Friends Of Yosemite Street Village is an action based, grassroot committee that simply wants to see small efforts leading to big changes: to ensure this district is utilized to its fullest potential.
