The Center

A nonprofit organization

The Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada (The Center), located in Downtown Las Vegas at 401 S. Maryland Parkway, provides a broad array of programs and services to thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people across Southern Nevada. We offer four population based programs for youth, seniors, the transgender community and those living with HIV. Also available is free HIV and STD testing, a cyber center, lending library, cultural events and activities, and much more. When there is a need, we give support to those coming out (no matter their age) and to parents in need of education and resources to better accept their LGBTQ identified child.

In addition to The Center being a place where people convene to find a welcoming, affirming and safe place; The Center makes referrals to community resources to those in crisis, and conducts legislative and community advocacy.
