Tampa YMCA bolsters LGBTQ outreach with Metro, Pride

The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA is partnering with Metro Inclusive Health to support Tampa Bay’s LGBTQ community during and after this year’s St Pete Pride.

The YMCA is the nation’s largest and oldest service organization, assisting 17 million members in and outside of the country. The Tampa YMCA has done so in Hillsborough and East Pasco counties since 1889, reaching more than 160,000 people each year.

The organization utilizes programming designed to “build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all” with its Judeo-Christian principles. Services extend to members of the LGBTQ community, officials share, as “strengthening community is our cause and ensuring access, inclusion and engagement for all is fundamental.”
