San Joaqin County Pride Center

About Us


The mission of the San Joaquin Pride Center is to serve the diverse LGBT+ community in San Joaquin County and the surrounding areas by creating a safe and welcoming space. We provide resources that enrich the body, mind and spirit, and educate the public in tolerance and respect for all people within the LGBT+ community.

Approach to Programming

We educate and support our diverse communities so that they feel empowered to create safe spaces and programs to their specific needs. We create social opportunities, raise awareness about the impact of non-acceptance, and provide mental health resources so that they become ingrained in the culture of schools, workplaces and home life. Through trainings and support systems we are able to let a space organically grow to its full potential of working with the LGBT+ community.

Who We Are


Jonathan Lopez – Program Manager and Presentations

Cristopher Bunnell – Human Resources

Michael Wayne Cozzens – Community Outreach Coordinator

James Patnaude – Transgender Support Services and Data Analyst

Atlas Rivera – Clinical Scheduler and Mental Health Outreach

News & Updates


Currently we are working on creative ways to be involved with our communities with Covid-19 currently happening. Since our schools have been shut down we are starting up a way to have GSA support via Zoom meetings as well as have youth empowerment workshops online.

coming soon

We hope to have a full GSA network up by the beginning of next year as well as rebooting our Parent and Family Workshops to better support our families at home who have a youth that identifies within the LGBT+ spectrum. If you visit our space in Stockton we are working with our Yosemite Street Village community to have health and wellness arts and mediums.
