Virtual Meetings

Our center groups have the option to temporarily go virtual while the center is closed. We are in touch with group facilitators to provide meeting resources and determine which groups will continue to meet via phone/virtual conference calls. Please e-mail programs@lgbtqcenter.org to find out more information!

Resources

We will continue to serve our community, even while the center is closed. Please continue to check our website for updates and lists of resources to help you or someone you may know until our doors are open again.
