On Our Stages - 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.
