After the parade, Apicha CHC staff was on hand for free HIV/STD testing, insurance enrollment, and nutrition assistance enrollment.

Our Apicha staff and volunteers loved interacting with the community! Check out some of the fun pictures from the day!

**Update August 2015: One of the pictures of Apicha from the Queens Pride Parade was chosen as a finalist for the National Health Center Week Photo Contest! Follow this link to vote until end-of-day August 28th! We couldn't be more excited to be part of the LGBT healthcare community, and the national health center community as a whole!**

We were so excited to be a part of this show of support for the LGBT community! Thank you for continuing to allow us to be a quality, non-discriminatory healthcare provider in New York City!
