To provide a safe space to support and celebrate LGBTQ diversity, equity, visibility and community building.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2016, Q Center saw a 33 percent increase in visits from LGBTQI+ community members—in total more than 20,000—who were seeking a safe and affirming space to be their authentic selves and organize their communities around resources, connection and solidarity.
“Q Center is a promise from one generation of queers to the next, that we can and should take up space in the world, and that we will hold space for the next generation.”
—D Pei Wu, community leader and Q Center monthly donor
