Our LGBTQ health and social support services deliver community outreach, community and individual-level interventions, and socialization in various settings aimed at changing behaviors and creating a safe, welcoming and affirming environment for everyone.

Our socialization program – ‘Plug'd’ - is designed to educate, empower and provide a safe and affirming space, and improve the health and well-being of gay and bisexual young men of color, men who have sex with men, and other gender non-conforming individuals in Brooklyn’s diverse communities and beyond.


Under the Plug'd program, we offer:

  • Community Outreach & Social Activities

  • PrEP & PEP Education and Linkage Services

  • HIV Testing & referrals for STI screenings & counseling for cis-gender men and transgendered individuals

  • Mental Health Services

  • Peer program that mobilizes young gay and bisexual men of color, men who have sex with men, and other gender conforming individuals to shape a healthy community of themselves, build positive social connectedness and support their friends and peers to live a healthier lifestyle.
