Community Groups - Los Angeles LGBT Center

The Los Angeles LGBT Center is more than a service provider, it’s where a vibrant community comes together to learn, grow, and celebrate.

We produce live performances and host exhibitions that showcase and celebrate the lives and experiences of the diverse LGBT community. To inform and enrich people, while helping them connect with one another, we host forums, activities, and events. We also provide affordable meeting space for groups, clubs, and organizations to host their own activities.

Never finished high school? We can help you get your GED and we award college scholarships to deserving LGBT youth.

Dear Group Participants,

As you know, federal, state and local officials are advising organizations to take extreme caution when it comes to public gatherings and group meetings as a result of the pandemic. In an effort to protect the health of our clients and the public, the Center will suspend all groups until further notice. In light of the quickly evolving nature of the pandemic, we will reassess this decision on an ongoing bases in the coming weeks.

We will reach out as these groups become available through online platforms.
