In the Bronx, Mayor unveils funding for LGBTQ community


Mayor Eric Adams paid a visit to Destination Tomorrow in the Bronx on June 17 to announce new funding initiatives for the LGBTQ community.

The funding — which covers a range of areas, including legal services, education, and health — stems from topics discussed during roundtable chats with LGBTQ people of color in the community, Adams said.

“We are proud to invest nearly $6.7 million to support our LGBTQ+ youth, to put real dollars into transgender, gender non-conforming, and non-binary-focused non-profits, and to take a critical step forward to creating a more equitable New York city,” Adams said in a written statement.
