PFY's History

In 1993, Long Island Crisis Center started PFY (formerly Pride for Youth) at a time when support and outreach to LGBTQ+ youth on Long Island were virtually non-existent. PFY has grown to encompass multiple services addressing many of the needs of LGBTQ+ youth and their families.

Pride for Youth created the Coffeehouse program in 1995 – the first suburban coffeehouse for LGBTQ+ youth in the country. We began airing public service announcements on MTV in the mid 90s – one of the first mass media outreach strategies for LGBTQ+ youth nationwide.
