The program components are knit together through a series of interior and exterior courtyards and plazas. The bold glass forms unfold at the corner of Santa Monica and McCadden, creating an open and confident architecture that will be a symbol of pride for not only the LGBT community but for the greater community of Los Angeles.
  • The Center has been part of the Los Angeles community since 1969, caring for, championing, and celebrating individuals and families in Southern California and beyond. Today the Center serves more people in the LGBT community than any other organization in the world, offering programs, services and global advocacy in health, social services and housing, culture and education, leadership and advocacy.
