In the past nine years embrace Western New York has raised $145,000+ for our local Western New York Community. Monies are distributed through Community Grants and Sponsorships and Educational Scholarships. embrace Western New York was proud to be the sponsor of the local premier of the film Swimming with Lesbians and to be able to support the important work of the Madeline Davis GLBT Archives. We continue to support the youth of GLYS (Gay and Lesbian Youth Services) along with local high school GSA's (Gay/Straight Alliances). We have been an active supporter of the Pride Center lending financial support each year for Pride Weekend. Cultural support has also extended to Just Buffalo Literary Center’s Spotlight on Youth events, the Buffalo Gay Men's Chorus and BUA Theatre. embrace Western New York is especially honored to award Educational Scholarships to Western New York students who are continuing their post-high school academic journey locally. Our annual fundraiser, The Buffalo Brunch, continues to be a well-received spring tradition!
