The Center is excellent and it is a safe place that I am able to express myself in a positive way. The team is there for everyone especially the teens in Center Youth.

What a great place. Came for a meeting and just loved the idea that this city had such a refuge. The Keith Haring mural is amazing.

It offers a variety of services and outlets. It could do better as far as outreach.It has a separate wing which is misleading for someone new. I attended a dating seminar which was a ploy to buy a book and stage a boring talk show. Instead of being fun and connecting people it created obstacles. At times they are strict about alcohol but if you're sponsoring a big enough venue then it's ok. It's a rock for the community at the same time crippling it's efforts to fall face first into a pile of broken meth. All jokes aside it has potential.

LGBTQ Friendly and Positive Space Attended an author reading here who experienced in his youth, racism and homophobia from schoolmates and neighbours, but in maturity his attitude and tone was positive supported by a packed room of fans. The space had a stage with seats and bright lights allowing everyone a good clear view of author and interviewer. Downstairs an information lobby and cafe were open to the public. Note: two mixed gender washrooms were an intriguing experience and maybe mixed bath houses will follow this equality trend?

Ci sono stato per ammirare una delle ultime opere di Keith Haring : Once upon a time. Il murales copre interamente la parete del bagno degli uomini al secondo piano. Lo spazio è aperto a tutti e il murales, in perfette condizioni, è liberamente visitabile. Fare una donazione è il minimo che si possa fare.

What a wonderful place is the LGBT Center. I have been a member for years, and use its huge number of resources all year long. As a gay man, to enter its welcoming doors and feel the warmth of the people, is so very reassuring. I am home, among my LGBT family. It would take years to take advantage of all it has to offer.
