About Us

Mission Statement

Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center is a mechanism for change in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to facilitate long-term positive growth in themselves and in the community of the Mid-South.


In 1989, the plans and dreams of numerous GLBT Mid-Southerners became a reality. Through their hard work and sacrifice, they built an "oasis in the desert of our struggle." The charter for this new organization became effective on Feb 23, 1989.

Over the years, we've had several homes, great triumphs and some lean times. But through it all, the Mission of our organization has maintained us: " create a better future for our Community in the Mid-South. We will endeavor to offer an array of diverse GLBT services by utilizing the talents, energy, and resources among us."

Whether or not you've ever walked through our doors or attended one of our events, know that we continue to work to make life better for ALL in our community.

Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center is governed by a Constitution & By-Laws that support the beliefs on which it was established.
