UP Center

The Uniting Pride (UP) Center of Champaign County is a resource center for local LGBTQ identified individuals.  To support and promote awareness of these populations, the UP Center hosts various weekly support groups, monthly events, and annual events (some of which can be found here).  In addition, the UP Center is also working hard to preserve the existence and contributions of LGBTQ identifying individuals within Champaign Country through a partnership with the Champaign County Historical Archives.  Through the in-depth documentation and collection of present-day activities as well as the future plans to conduct interviews to create an oral documentation of historical LGBTQ presence, the UP Center is helping to ensure the preservation of the past, present, and endurance in the future of the local LGBTQ community.
