The Queens LGBT Center is a home and a voice for the LGBT and allied community

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 of Queens and Long Island. The LGBT Network's four community centers help LGBT people to be themselves, stay healthy, and change the world. The LGBT Network has a 25-year history of pioneering advocacy and change to promote safe spaces where LGBT people live, learn, work, play, and pray.

In 2021, the LGBT Network opened the Queens LGBT Community Center (Q-Center) in Astoria, located at the historic Kaufman Astoria Studios at 35-11 35th Avenue, to better serve the growing LGBT and ally community in Queens. It has quickly become a hub of activity and community organizing.

To help LGBT people and their loved ones to achieve their fullest potential through education, support, and advocacy.

The mission of Q Center is to celebrate and take pride in LGBT identities, care for individuals and groups in need, educate the public about those individuals and groups, address health disparities, build community, and empower all. Q Center particularly works to help those most underserved through addressing heterosexism, homophobia, and transphobia.
