Pride Cheerleading Association (PCA)Cheer New York is part of the Pride Cheerleading Association (PCA). Formed in 2004, PCA is the natural progression of growth and popularity in the USA, Canada, and Australia of LGBT community-based cheerleading squads which set themselves apart from traditional and all-star cheerleading groups by PCA’s main mission - to do philanthropic work to support adults and children living with HIV and other life-challenging conditions.

PCA also exists as a support network to share best practices and resources for both established and newly-formed LGBT community-based cheerleading squads and serves as an association under which all cheerleading teams can assemble during the international GAY GAMES (Olympic Games-style athletic event) and other unified performances and fundraising events.
