Gay City Seattle's LGBTQ Center
Welcome to Gay City: Seattle’s LGBTQ Center with more than 20 years of supporting and advocating for their LGBTQ communities. Gay City formed in 1995 during the HIV/AIDS epidemic and has evolved into an organization impacting both the Greater Seattle Area and beyond. They provide a space for their LGBTQ people to grow, thrive, and be themselves. Gay City’s Wellness Center, their LGBTQ Resource & Referral Program, their Gay City Volunteer Crew, and Gay City Arts all provide multiple ways for their community to gather, connect, find voice and serve.
Gay City: Seattle’s LGBTQ Center cultivates access and connections to promote self-determination, liberation and joy in their communities.
Gay City recognizes that our community members are multifaceted, with overlapping and intersecting identities. Gay City seeks to honor our interdependent identities in all our services and programming. They also recognize that LGBTQ communities face multiple and intersecting forms of structural oppression. We are committed to honoring those truths in all that they do.
Gay City is committed to creating more opportunities for all LGTBQ people to receive services, resources, engage in community and in the Arts. To do that, they’re committed to building accessibility.
Gay City takes community seriously. They act in service of people’s daily needs, and towards their greater liberation, as they are not separate. They know the power of community and take great care in building it for today and generations to come.
Gay City sees transparency being key in creating equitable outcomes and getting people what they need to be successful. They have established policies, procedures, and practices with the intent to be clear and open with the communities They serve.
Gay City shows up. They lean into their responsibility to address critical issues affecting LGBTQ people. Gay City advocates for the whole person.
