With a new vision and a new direction, Erie Gay Pride, Inc. now has a new name – Greater Erie Alliance for Equality (GEAE). Originally incorporated in 2006 GEAE is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the region's LGBT community and its straight allies through education, open dialogue and public visibility. As the organization evolved, the Board of Directors realized that the group needed to broaden its mission and its role in the community. To that end, this summer the Board voted to reincorporate Erie Gay Pride, Inc. under a new name – Greater Erie Alliance for Equality, Inc.
