Welcome to the conversation!

The Los Angeles LGBT Center hosts eight peer support and discussion groups for the community as part of our Social Network Groups program from the Cultural Arts Department. The community groups are led by trained and dedicated volunteer facilitators. Their dedication has led to the long-lasting success of this important service. As for the future, whatever comes next for our community is already being discussed in these groups.

REMINDER: These groups are NOT meant to be a substitution for licensed therapy groups or individual counseling. If you are feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, or if you’re dealing with issues that feel beyond your control, we URGE you to seek professional, mental healthcare or contact the Trevor Project (866-488-7386) or Trans Lifeline (877-565-8860).

Dear Group Participants,

As you know, federal, state, and local officials are advising organizations to take extreme caution when it comes to public gatherings and group meetings as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to protect the health of our clients and the public, the Center will suspend all groups until further notice. In light of the quickly evolving nature of the pandemic, we will reassess this decision on an ongoing bases in the coming weeks.
