Community Building

As we build our community, we strengthen the bonds among our own subpopulations and build bridges to other communities where we live, work, and play.

Pride Pop Ups

Where are all the LGBTQ+ people in your area? Hanging out with The Center, obviously! Every month we go out into the community and take over a public space. Restaurants, bowling alleys, arcades, bars, and even local city events. We get together and enjoy the space while proudly reppin’ LGBTQ+ people in the SGV. If you’re comfortable being out and proud, join us to meet new people in your area and have a good time.
