Anita May Rosenstein Campus - Los Angeles LGBT Center

Since 1969 the Los Angeles LGBT Center has cared for, championed, and celebrated LGBT individuals and families in Los Angeles and beyond.

Today the Center's nearly 700 employees provide services for more LGBT people than any other organization in the world, offering programs, services, and global advocacy that span four broad categories: Health, Social Services and Housing, Culture and Education, Leadership and Advocacy.

Despite our size, scope, and determination to meet the growing demand for our services, we remain a lean, fiscally disciplined organization, earning a four-star Charity Navigator rating for six consecutive years.

We are an unstoppable force in the fight against bigotry and the struggle to build a better world, a world in which LGBT people can be healthy, equal, and complete members of society.

Sneak Peek at the Center’s New Campus!


Take a look at renderings of the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s beautiful new Anita May Rosenstein Campus, scheduled to open in early 2019 directly across the street from The Village at Ed Gould Plaza in Hollywood. Though we're continuing to work with community members, city staff, and our own architects to finalize a precise design, these drawings offer an exciting sneak peek at what the facility will look like when it's finished.


The revolutionary new campus will include 99 units of affordable housing for seniors, 100 beds for homeless youth (double the number we currently have), new senior and youth centers, 25 units of supporting housing for young people, a commercial kitchen to feed homeless youth and seniors, ground floor retail space, and 350 subterranean parking spaces for residents and visitors to The Village.

The Anita May Rosenstein Campus will also be the Center’s new administrative headquarters, freeing space for the McDonald/Wright building to become entirely a health and medical center, thereby enabling us to meet the growing demand for health-related services, including medical care, mental health, addiction recovery, HIV/STD testing and treatment, and much more.


The Center is engaged in a campaign to raise $50 million or more for the new facility by our 50th Anniversary in 2019. We’ve raised gifts and commitments of over $47 million, including a lead gift of $7.27 million from the Anita May Rosenstein Foundation, Wilbur D. May Foundation, and the Anita and Arnold Rosenstein Family Foundation. Click here to view the full list of donors.
