The Fresno LGBT Community Center is currently the only one of its kind between Bakersfield and Sacramento, and we work daily to make Fresno and our surrounding communities safer place for the LGBT community.
We strive to do this by being Visible, Vocal, and Supportive.
The Fresno LGBT Community Center opened in January 2011 and serves as a safe space, a resource center, a media lending library and a meeting site for multiple programs including support groups (Transgender, Women, Coming Out, LGBT Parents, etc) and social programs (creative, hobby, and community building), as well as informational workshops (name / gender change, legal rights, etc).
We service, on average, over 240 calls, over 40 walk-ins, and several dozen email information requests a month, and have over 2,100 names on our mailing list. The Center currently provides space over 30 times a month for groups and individuals to come in, get informed, get involved, to meet, and to connect.
Our volunteer staff also facilitates several community activities such as biannual LGBT themed health fairs and fundraisers, as well as bringing nationally renowned cultural events to the Fresno area.
