Pridelines is Miami-Dade County’s LGBTQ Community Center and South Florida’s oldest LGBTQ direct service agency. Their mission is to support, educate, and empower South Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and community in safe and diverse spaces to promote dialogue and wellness and foster social change.

Pridelines was founded by gay and bisexual youth for LGBTQ youth in the wake of Anita Bryant’s Save Our Children campaign.  Rooted in a peer-led/adult-facilitated youth group model, the group began meeting at Miami-Dade College in 1982 and was formerly known as Pridelines Youth Services. Today, the agency has matured just like the youth they serve.  In 2015, the organization shortened its name to Pridelines to reflect its ongoing commitment to supporting the lives of all members of South Florida’s LGBTQ community.

Pridelines provides health programs and services for people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, youth programs and services for youth and young adults ages 14 to 24, programs and services for homeless youth who are 18 to 24 and at-risk of or currently experiencing homelessness, and community engagement opportunities for members of the LGBTQ community and their allies, regardless of age.

Miracle of Love Inc. is the oldest and largest non-profit AIDS Service Organization (ASO) for communities of color in Central Florida. Miracle of Love’s founder, Lowell D. Stafford, began providing care services to multicultural communities in 1991 with the use of volunteers and was funded partly by his own Social Security checks. The organization was not incorporated until 1997, and in 1998 received its first federal grant award.

MOL’s mission is to provide comprehensive, multicultural HIV/AIDS care, education, and prevention services that are effective and responsive to the Central Florida communities. With over 25 years of outstanding service, Miracle of Love continues to serve as a resource for education, support, medical and non-medical case management, housing case management, community advocacy, confidential HIV/ STI screening, and linkage to care.

Compass Community Center aims to diminish stereotypes by challenging long-standing misconceptions about the character of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. They accomplish this by emboldening our youth, promoting pride in our community, and acting as an educator, advocate, health service provider, and focal point for community organizing.  As good neighbors, effective partners, and respected participants in our civic responsibilities, Compass promotes awareness of the caring nature of our diverse community. With nearly three decades in #HIV/AIDS direct services, Compass has on-site HIV case management services to connect newly-diagnosed people to care and continues its tradition as an expert in HIV prevention activities in partnership with the Florida State Department of Health.

AH provides case-managed health care, food, counseling, housing, referral, and support services to assist in helping people live fuller, healthier lives, plus services not covered by other grants and resources, such as non-covered prescription medications, alternative therapies, and a nutrition and fitness program. In addition, the agency provides education, outreach, testing, referral, PrEP counseling, and safer sex packet/condom distribution.

Now in our 4th decade of service, AH of Monroe (AH) is Florida’s oldest continuously operating AIDS service organization (ASO) and remains the only agency in Monroe County that serves individuals living with HIV and AIDS across the demographic spectrum from Key Largo to Key West.

AH is TSR’s legacy Agency —  when it was known as BIKE It & B.E.A.R. It for AIDS, The Southernmost AIDS Ride 2, and the subsequent TSRs 3-20. Their importance to our annual budget and the lives of our clients is without measure. AH has called upon past and present TSR funding to enhance its Mission of HEALTH + HOUSING, most recently renovating and expanding Marty’s Place Residential Care Center. A plaque attesting to TSR’s contributions is prominently installed on the building exterior to remind residents and visitors of the astounding imprint TSR has left on our community.

AH, with the statewide biking teams we think of as friends and never competitors, looks forward to helping make a difference in the lives of so many again this year.
