Support Groups - Los Angeles LGBT Center

The Los Angeles LGBT Center has been caring for people with HIV, regardless of their ability to pay, since the earliest days of the epidemic. Today no organization offers a wider range of leading edge services to help protect against HIV infection and to fully support those living with HIV, including medical care, clinical trials, individual and group counseling, an on-site pharmacy, support groups, and more.

Whether you’ve been newly diagnosed or are a long-term survivor, our support groups help people with HIV live happier lives


This is a free drop-in group for HIV-positive gay and bisexual men—whether you’ve been newly diagnosed or are a long-term survivor—to help you lead a healthier and happier life. We meet weekly to discuss topics that could include: higher self-thinking, establishing personal mission statements, goal-setting, and disclosing your status.

We also offer assistance with referrals to medical care, case management, and mental health services. Positive Images also engages in community events that support the LGBT community and we encourage our participants to join us.

Call 323-860-7321 to RSVP.

As an HIV-positive senior, do you sometimes feel isolated, invisible, and stigmatized because of your status? If so, you’re not alone.

Join this free drop-in support group facilitated by mental health professionals from the Los Angeles LGBT Center and AIDS Project Los Angeles. We focus on issues ranging from the physical side effects of medication to the psychological impact of coping with HIV/AIDS over an extended time.
