The LGBTQ Focus Foundation is a 501(c)3 that produces Women's Pride in the Pines. In 2016 it will benefit Ali Forney and HMI (the Hetrick Martin Institute). Both groups help LGBTQ youth and 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 past years over 75% of event proceeds benefited the designated charity, as overlead is low.
Pride in the Pines is proudly co-hosted by Yale GALA, Inc.
