"I was honored to be a part of advocacy work at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center of New York and inspired by the spirit of the LGBT past, present, and future work towards equality. My experience opened my eyes to the work it took to get us here and to what glorious heights we will reach together."
"We were thrilled to host these terrific young people who found themselves in our city to participate in this groundbreaking show. The Real World has a long and rich history of including LGBT people and people with HIV as cast members, and we are proud to be part of "Real World: Brooklyn's" success. However, the best part for us was having three terrific people, who care about the LGBT community; bring their enthusiasm and spirit to the Center. We were so moved to see each of them leave the Center with the knowledge that they had made a profound contribution to our programs and services."
-Richard Burns, Executive Director of The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center

One of the biggest stars on this season of the “Real World” is your community center! This year, the Center opened its doors and welcomed three roommates of the “Real World” cast. Three out of eight roommates decided they wanted to pursue their passions through volunteer internships at the Center. For three months, MTV brought in their camera crews and captured the heart of the Center and uncovered why the three housemates would choose to spend so much of their time working for the vital programs offered by the Center.
