Celebrating 20 Years As A Leader In The LGBTQ Community

This year marks Gay City’s 20th anniversary, a significant milestone in our history. We’ve got a 20 year history built on a foundation of our core values backing us up. We’re inclusive, innovative, holistic and multicultural. Our clients, staff, supporters, and volunteers represent the incredible diversity of the LGBTQ community we’re proud to provide service to. It’s a community that relies on us, just like we rely on you.

As Gay City has changed over the past 20 years, so has our community. It’s these changes in our community that underscore the need for a place like Gay City, a place at the intersection of the many different facets of Seattle’s LGBTQ community. We provide a space for people to be who they are, but we also provide the opportunity for people to interact with other members of the LGBTQ community in ways that may challenge them, and help them become their whole selves. This is why hundreds of people use our Michael C. Weidemann LGBT Library every year, and why we provide more than 1,800 referrals every year through our LGBT Resource & Referral Center. This is why we provided nearly 1,000 free HIV tests in the first quarter of 2015, our biggest quarter in our 11 years of testing. This is why so many people in our community say that Gay City feels like home.

Join us as we look to our next 20 years by making a generous gift or pledge of support to Gay City. We’re grateful for your continuing support because it’s your generosity, and the generosity of people like you, that’s helped make Gay City the center for community it is today.
