For twenty years Gay City has been on the front lines of helping people in our communities invest in themselves and in one another. Over that time, we’ve grown in services and scope, added new programs, and expanded to include more people in more facets of Seattle’s LGBTQ community. 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 two decades, 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.
