At UGRC, we are passionate about upliftment and empowerment. Our organization's mission is to foster healthy connections with the Black LGBTQ community through education, power building and social engagement.


Our Story

From July 20-22, 2018, the groundbreaking UGRC event, Black Pride RVA, took place. This inaugural gathering, the first of its kind in Richmond, VA and the Commonwealth of Virginia, attracted individuals from various parts of the state and beyond to be a part of a historic moment. With the theme "Pride with a Purpose," the weekend showcased a range of planned events aimed at educating, embracing, and celebrating the distinctive lived experiences of the Bi- POC LGBTQ community.
