Pridelines is a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded by gay and bisexual youth for LGBTQ youth and their allies in the wake of Anita Bryant’s “Save Our Children” campaign.  Rooted in a peer-led/adult-facilitated youth group model, and with the help of Dr Marilyn Volker, Peter Meyer and other concerned adults, the group began meeting at Miami-Dade College in 1982.  In 1999 the group incorporated, moved into its own space and changed its name to Pridelines Youth Services.  Fundraising efforts quickly increased, Health Department contracts soon followed and programs grew contributing the growth of Pridelines Youth Services.  Pridelines was one of the first community-based HIV testing sites in Miami-Dade County.  More than 40 years later, Pridelines continues to providesafe space, social support, skills building, leadership development and referrals to mental health, health care and support services for LGBTQ youth and their straight allies throughout South Florida. 


Pridelines is the headquarters for the agency and is a LGBTQ+ community center that provides a safe and welcoming space for youth and adults, offering support, education, and advocacy programs.
