Pride in the Pines benefits an LGBT charity each year (rotates): in 2015 HMI (the Hetrick Martin Institute) is the beneficiary. HMI helps LGBTQ youth to reach their full potential, especially at-risk youth and homeless young people. (40% of homeless youth are LGBT and 30% are thrown out of their homes after they come out). In 2013 and 2014 over 75% of event proceeds benefited the designated charity (SAGE and HMI, respectively).
Pride in the Pines is co-hosted by FFF/Princeton BTGALA, Yale GALA
and the Manhattan Lesbian Party List (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ManhattanLezPartyList/) . List in formation.
