Savannah’s First City Pride Center is an inclusive advocacy, social, and service organization actively working to meet the needs for safety, empowerment, education, and well-being of Greater Savannah’s LGBTQIA+ community.
History & Overview of First City Pride Center
First City Pride Center first started in 2017 as the Savannah LGBT Center. In 2020, the Savannah LGBT joined forces with the queer organizations Savannah Pride, Jeffrey’s Place, and the Center to form the First City Pride Center under the First City Network.
Today, First City Pride Center is one of only two LGBTQIA+ centers in Georgia. The 501(c)3 organization is a trans-led, volunteer-driven, registered non-profit organization serving the greater Savannah LGBTQIA+ community and 12+ surrounding Georgia counties.
Business Services Provided by the First City Pride Center
In addition to holding numerous social events and support programs, First City Pride Center manages an Equality Business Directory featuring local LGBTQIA+ owned, operated, or friendly businesses. The directory is regularly updated and released bi-annually. It is distributed throughout town at local businesses and at First City Pride events.
Businesses interested in listing their services and products in the directory, can do so for free. Those that would prefer an “enhanced” ad with more information and/or colors can pay to advertise. The Center offers numerous affordable advertising options, starting at as little as $50 for a 1/8 page and up to $150 for a full page.
