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.

Dear members of our Los Angeles LGBT Center family,

There is nothing more important than your safety. As you know, the ongoing response COVID-19/novel coronavirus has been quickly evolving. To comply with the overnight guidance from the California Department of Public Health and the County of Los Angeles, we are immediately postponing our upcoming production of HAIR.

If you’ve already purchased tickets, they will be valid when we’re able to remount the production. If you prefer, you may opt to receive a refund or donate the ticket price back to the Center.

The need to postpone a production is never easy, as it impacts many people in our community, including our dedicated staff, artists, and craftspeople. However, given the potential impact of this public health emergency, we must do the utmost to keep our entire community safe. That will continue to remain the most important factor in how we continue to respond.

Your ongoing support of the Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center is deeply appreciated and absolutely vital as we continue our mission to serve the diverse audiences of Los Angeles by producing and presenting theatre of the highest caliber.

We look forward to the moment when we can once again raise the curtain at the Renberg and Davidson/Valentini Theatres and celebrate the power of theatre with you.
