Through education and outreach, 406 Pride works with the diverse populations of Montana to build unity, acceptance, and fellowship and to ensure that LGBTQ+ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and throughout our community.
406 Pride started as The Awareness Project/TAP 365 in 2012. As an educational nonprofit, TAP 365 offered programing and support for LGBTQ+ people and allies in Eastern Montana. In 2018 the board of TAP 365 changed the organization’s name to 406 Pride to be more explicit about the organization’s LGBTQ+ focus. 406 Pride is a 501(c)(3) charity, and all donations to 406 Pride are tax deductible.
406 Pride opened a LGBTQ+ Resource Center on March 23, 2019. The Resource Center is an open affirming environment for peoples of all sexual orientations and gender identity expressions. We work with the diverse populations of Montana to build unity, acceptance, and fellowship and to ensure that LGBTQ+ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and throughout our community.
The 406 Pride resource center is located inside Billings First Congregational Church at 310 North 27th Street on the corner of North 27th Street and 3rd Avenue North. 406 Pride leases the resource center space from the church, but it is a wholly separate organization. The main entrance for the resource center is on the Northwest side of the building via the red fire escape. For individuals who cannot easily walk up or down a half flight of stairs, the resource center can also be accessed by using the front door of the church. The front door does have a wheelchair accessible ramp.
The resource center's main entrance is up a half flight of stairs on this red fire escape.
