LGBTQ issues are human rights issues. Members of our community come from all walks of life and are impacted across the inter-sectional spectrum. In order to serve our community we stay informed, active, and engaged in human rights of all kinds.

Stand up for something important

From issues regarding immigration and incarceration to races and social class injustices, the strive for equality is paramount.

Our mission is to support the health and wellness of the most marginalized, advocate for equality and justice, and build a culturally-rich LGBTQ community. We are committed to sharing the successes and struggles of all groups, whether they identify as LGBT or not.

While we share these news articles and personal updates, feel free to contact us if there is any way that the Center can help in our local community as well as abroad.
