The MOCHA Center


LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer) people of color need space to network, socialize and address the various health issues faced around this region. The MOCHA Center exists to meet those needs.

The MOCHA Center serves Rochester and Buffalo through our two locations. Our spaces host community events, offer supportive services to those in need, provide a link to PrEP (a life-saving HIV prevention medication), perform free HIV testing and sex education, and distribute free safer sex tools like condoms and lube to the community.

Through our partnerships with area healthcare establishments like Trillium HealthErie County STD ClinicYouth LinkEvergreen Health, and Erie County Medical Center, we are able to link our community members to friendly, affordable care.

Although we focus on LGBTQ communities of color, we welcome ALL here; Every Voice has Value.
