PFLAG Reno/Sparks is reborn!

We invite YOU to join US in welcoming the new PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians & Gays) chapter to Our Community!

We plan to work closely with them as we grow our Homies Youth Group and expand our general programing.
Many Parents and Friends have questions or concerns about their gay friends, kids, spouses etc. and now there will be a place to go. We couldn’t be more thrilled to support them.

The mixer will be held this Wednesday, August 20th, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Silver Peak Restaurant and Brewery on Holcomb/Wonder! Food will be provided by Build Our Center. Connections, information, and ideas will be inspired by the new PFLAG!


Pflag Reno/Sparks is back!

August is filled with a colorful line up of goodness.

We are still in recovery from Northern Nevada Pride Festival and CommUNITY Parade in July. However, the show must go on.

August brings the return of 2 fundraising events – The CommUNITY Pride Parade of Pancakes (which begins right after the Aids Walk) and Pink Party. These both celebrate our community in our own unique way.  We hope to see you this month!

We are also a Proud Sponsor of the Northern Nevada Aids Walk.  An annual event sponsored by our friends at Northern Nevada Hopes.

The 2nd Wednesday of the month is Guerrilla Queer Bar Reno  and 3rd Saturday of the month brings Queer Bake, our monthly fundraiser.

Can you believe it’s finally here?

We have so many fun things to do and see.current flyer-July2014…….A Parade, Interactive Art Exhibits, Entertainment, Midway Games, Food Trucks, Competitions and even a Bounce House.
Thank you for all of your support and ideas. We are so happy to work with you to create our future.


A committed group of volunteers came together in September to consider putting together a new festival in our community. We wanted something decidedly community oriented.  We wanted to live up to our mission to Build, Strengthen and Connect.

Businesses and People and Sponsors stepped up and said Yes! we believe in you.

Thank you for your patience along the way. We are learning and learning and learning.

We hope you will come out, have fun and consider the future with Build Our Center.

Thanks for loving the gays.:)
