Our History

Founded by Andrew Jonas, Felipe Hernandez & Lance Gaylord, Cheer New York (Cheer NY), an all-volunteer non-profit adult cheerleading squad, made up of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Straight allies (LGBTS), has been serving the NY-NJ area since 2002 by inspiring hope and encouragement in audiences wherever we perform and raising money for people with challenging conditions and life-threatening illnesses through its Cheer for Life fund.

Cheer NY began as a twelve-member club sport that combined cheers, gymnastics, dance and extreme acrobatic stunts at local events and performances, but in just a short decade, Cheer NY has evolved into something extraordinary: a New York-based philanthropic organization with a worldwide fan base!

We are a charity, sport, social club, and family all in one!

Our Motto
Reaching new heights with love, spirit, strength and understanding.

Our Message
Cheer Loud! Cheer Proud!
