In its first year, 60 groups met regularly at the center. Today more than groups call the center home. Programs produced by the center include Center Wellness, an Adult Services Department working with people with AIDS, struggling with substance abuse issues, mental health challenges and much more; Youth Services, an activities-based program for LGBT youth; Center Cultural Programs, presenting established and emerging artists, writers, and activitist to the community; Center Families, the Center's family project. The Lesbian Switchboard became a permanent tenant after it was evicted from its former home, and Dignity, a Catholic gay and lesbian religious organization, sought refuge when it was expelled from Catholic churches.

Gay New York City
Our providers have extensive experience working with Asians and Pacific Islanders, Latinos, African Americans and other people of color. Raymund Sison hails from the Philippines and pursued his education at the University of the Philippines College of Medicine, then moved to the U. He has developed life-long advocacy for HIV patient care and prevention from his clinical research experience and will continue this at Apicha CHC. In after two decades of HIV-focused practice, we expanded our nationally recognized HIV care model to include general primary care.
No guesswork here. Gay New York offers every kind of experience for every kind of visitor. It can be an overwhelming city, but with the proper planning, New York will be an incredible experience.
