Who We Are & What We Do

We connect LGBTQN+ West Texans in the Permian Basin to better lives by connecting us all to one another.


Pride Center West Texas has a charitable mission to improve the lives of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) minorities through the provision of safe gathering spaces, educational offerings, and social services that prioritize those who identify as LGBTQN+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, nonbinary, and the rest of our family members +).



 A Permian Basin in which all West Texans feel safe to exist and gather with folks like them- to share in love and experience.
