The LGBT Center Orange County’s mission is to advocate on behalf of the Orange County Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Queer/Questioning communities and provide services that ensure its well-being and positive identity.
Formerly known as The Gay and Lesbian Community Services Center of Orange County, the LGBT Center OC was established as a volunteer organization in 1971 and incorporated in 1975 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit community-based organization. We are one of the oldest gay and lesbian community centers in the United States.
The LGBT Center Orange County provides services to more than 10,000 individuals annually across a broad spectrum of cultures, ethnicities, ages, and economic backgrounds. Programming is especially designed for gay men, lesbians, youth, the transgender community, the Spanish-speaking LGBT community, the bisexual community, those who are questioning, and LGBT families.
