"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."
"TransActive Gender Center provides a holistic range of services and expertise to empower transgender and gender diverse children, youth and their families in living healthy lives, free of discrimination.
TransActive's education program offers high-quality, affordable educational workshops and training to prepare and assist those who wish to effectively and respectfully meet the needs of children and youth who are gender diverse and/or transgender. And their Advocacy Project offers grass-roots, non-legal representation and support to gender diverse children and youth age 23-and-under and their families."
"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."
