New York City’s Pride Cheerleaders
Gotham Cheer is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit adult cheerleading team that was created out of our personal drive to give back to those who are in need, particularly Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer or Questioning homeless or disadvantaged youth. We aim to be leaders in the community through volunteer work and community service events.
OVER $11,000 RAISED
Gotham Cheer 5K Rainbow Run
Proceeds benefiting homeless youth
October 25th was filled with "RAINBOWS & UNICORNS" at the Gotham Cheer 5K Rainbow Run! And one week later, as we reach the last day of our fundraising efforts, the magic and awe are still abound as we have passed our initial goal and collected OVER $11,000 for homeless LGBTQIA+ youth! Incredible!!
Thank you all, cheerleaders and donors alike, for showing NYC homeless youth that they are not alone and that the community has their back, even during the COVID-19 pandemic and these challenging times.
Inclusivity is the heart of our organization. Gotham Cheer welcomes diverse people from all types of backgrounds and talents.
The Gotham Cheer family is made up of unique service-oriented LGBTQIA+ adult members dedicated to making an impact on our neighbors, Community Partners, the U.S. and beyond.
Each year, Gotham Cheer chooses a local charity that benefits and empowers New York City’s LGBTQIA+ youth. In 2020, Gotham Cheer has chosen TWO charities as beneficiaries of the Gotham Cheer Community Partner Grant – ACQC & Trinity Place Shelter. Their mission is to help homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer youth and young adults.
