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.

Lindsey Deaton, Artistic Director
Performing David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

Friday, April 7 and Saturday, April 8 at 8 p.m.

Ziggy Stardust

The Renberg Theatre proudly welcomes Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, who will perform the first staged concert production of the full The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars by David Bowie. As Bowie intended, additional hit songs will complete the entire musical saga.

“The chorus is very thrilled and excited to sing the music of David Bowie,” says Artistic Director Lindsey Deaton. “Many of us grew up with Bowie who, we felt, allowed us to live our truth and express ourselves authentically.”

TCLA is the largest group of trans and gender non-conforming people anywhere in the world who gather together regularly to raise their voices in song. Its performances are intended not only to empower its members, but also to change the way others see the transgender community.

The Los Angeles LGBT Center is proud to present
CineArte 2017: A Latinx Queer Film & Art Festival
April 21, 22, 23

CineArte is a three-day festival that includes an art exhibit featuring 10-12 local artists, outdoor music featuring local musicians, and a film festival. It also provides community vendors an opportunity to market and sell their wares.

The film portion of the festival includes two series of short films, one focusing on lesbian subjects and one on shorts about gay men. We have also shown films from 12 different countries covering the entire LGBT community.

Nearly 80% of attendees are Latino/a. We have seen great diversity in age, from teens to seniors. The festival is envisioned as a family event where Latino/a families can bring everyone, including elders and children. It has become a community event that is eagerly anticipated each year.

S/He & Me

Starring Alexandra Billings
Conceived and directed by Joanne Gordon

CA2017 SHe Me Postcard frontA celebration in words and music of the intense relationships and love affairs we all have with our past. Seen through the eyes of Transparent star Alexandra Billings, this one-act musical play is a non-linear dramatization of her life, introducing us to her parents, her wife, and Scot (the person she used to be). S/he & Me threads together the moments — dramatic and domestic — that complete the vivid portrait of her triumphant self. It’s an exciting and engrossing portal to understanding and acceptance.
