Employment - Los Angeles LGBT Center

The Center’s programs and services are open and accessible to everyone in the community. If you’re transgender or someone who is transitioning or preparing to transition, we’ve got a number of programs, activities, and events specifically for you.

From providing leading-edge healthcare to hosting the nation’s largest Transgender Pride Festival, no organization offers a wider range of transgender-specific programming.

If you’re a transgender person struggling to find a job, let us help—we’ve got relationships with a number of trans-welcoming employers. Start here.

Our Transgender Economic Empowerment Project (TEEP) offers a wide range of services to help transgender people find employment and to help make workplaces more welcoming to trans people. We also host transgender career fairs that are routinely attended by dozens of employers.
