The mission of UGRC is to improve the health and well-being of Black LGBTQ communities of greater Richmond.


We formed as a group of dedicated Black LGBTQ community leaders who saw the need for a coming together of LGBTQ persons of color. 


Our Programs

UGRC believes in celebrating diversity, promoting inclusion, and fostering healthy communities through our actions.

Explore our catalog of programs that serve to enrich the LGBTQ+ Community.

Our programs include UGRC's premier program,  
BLACK PRIDE RVA and our annual COMMUNITY HEALTH FAIR , both of which aim to bring people together, uplift marginalized voices, and encourage physical and mental well-being.
