Gotham Cheer is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was created out of our personal drive to give back to those who are in need, particularly homeless or disadvantaged youth. We aim to be leaders in the community through volunteer work and community service events.
Our mission is to amplify the voices of those in our community working hard to bring awareness to LGBTQIA+ issues, HIV/AIDS and other life-challenging conditions by raising money for local charities through our Community Grant and serving the greater New York area through advocacy and working with our Community Partners
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.
"Gotham Cheer has been a way for me to connect with like-minded adults who have a passion for community. Through this organization, I have made life-long connections and friendships that have given me the confidence and courage to ALWAYS be my unique self."
