    Q Center


    "Q Center provides a safe space to support and celebrate LGBTQ diversity, equity, visibility and community building. There are dozens of events and groups that meet here, some focused on specific topics (like coming out or gender identity) and others aimed at fun social interactions (like sing-along piano cabarets or craft nights).


    In addition their 5,000 sq/ft facility is also a safe and friendly place to spend an afternoon. With their monthly art exhibits, extensive library collection, Resource Wall, and free WiFi access, there’s always something to see and learn at Q Center."

    The Equi Institute


    "The Equi Institute provides affordable, excellent, culturally specific, patient empowering health care that fits the needs of the individual rather than trying to make people fit a cookie-cutter model.


    The Equi Institute trusts their patients to make the choices they need to make for themselves, and respects those choices.  All providers and staff employed or volunteering at The Equi Institute are trained in the philosophy and practical application of the theories of Health at Every Size, Racial Justice, Economic Equality, and Non-Violent Communication, with a focus on community advocacy, education, and positive sociocultural change."

    The NWGA is a non-profit social, support and educational group for trans individuals. The NWGA is open and affirming of all gender, sex, and sexual identities, and they welcome MTF / transwomen, FTM / transmen, androgynous or gender-variant individuals, and intersex community members. The group, traditionally a “club,” holds monthly open meetings and sponsors a variety of transgender social functions throughout the year. They provide educational forums for public and private organizations or individuals interested in learning more about trans experience and the gender spectrum. Their members find support, understanding and acceptance on a one-to-one basis from others who face the similar challenges in life. They welcome new and diverse members.



    "SMYRC provides a safe, supervised, harassment-free space for sexual and gender minority youth ages 13-23 who participate in positive activities like art, music, community organizing, open mic nights, drag shows, and support groups and receive services including case management, counseling, education, and more.
