Our
Approach

Fifty Years

can seem like a lifetime

But it was only a little over 50 years ago that the LGBTQ+ revolution, led by the Stonewall Riots and Marsha P. Johnson, thrust a public awareness tidal wave on the nations cultural landscape.

As the oldest LGBTQ+ organization in Pittsburgh, Persad has been the consistent thread in the fabric in our community and the need for professional, culturally competent therapy continues to grow. If you have a passion for community mental health and care about the LGBTQ+ community, then we would like to speak with you.

In 1972, as the Gay Rights Movement was gaining steam, the idea of Persad Center was created by two passionate Pittsburgh Leaders as a way for our LGBTQ+ community members to seek the mental health therapy services that they needed at a safe, and caring place.

Join us and make a difference.

We look forward to hearing from you.
