ABOUT THE NETWORK
The LGBT Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is a home and a voice for LGBT people, their families, and support systems in Long Island and Queens.
Our community centers help LGBT people to be themselves, stay healthy, and change the world.
Since 1993, the LGBT Network has been pioneering advocacy and social change to create safe spaces where LGBT people LIVE, LEARN, WORK, PLAY, and PRAY.
Community Need. Organization Impact.
The LGBT Network is a leader in creating and implementing solutions to address many of the greatest challenges that LGBT people face today – bullying in our schools, discrimination and harassment, lack of community and socialization, disproportionate burden of HIV, unsafe workplaces, lack of housing and service options for LGBT older adults, and a lack of LGBT-affirming and welcoming community services. The realities of unsafe spaces and communities for LGBT people drive the organization’s efforts to continue our history of pioneering advocacy and social change.
The LGBT Network operates LGBT community centers throughout the expansive Long Island and Queens region to reach and serve as many LGBT people and their families as possible. More than 30,000 visits are made annually to access the LGBT Network’s expansive offerings of social, cultural, health, support, and other programs.
The LGBT Network’s community centers are a safe space and life-changing resource for the tens of thousands of LGBT and ally individuals who pass through our doors each year. Our Centers offer public spaces for people of all ages to relax, hang out, study, work, or simply meet new people – and to access a wide range of LGBT-affirming programs and services offered daily. Special events and gatherings help to unite Long Islanders and Queens residents and celebrate the diversity and intersectionality of our communities.
