The Lesbian Gay Bi Transgender Community Center of Metropolitan St. Louis is a community organization serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and ally community of St. Louis, Missouri.

History[edit]

The organization was formed in early 2005 after the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force held its 2004 annual Creating Change Conference in St. Louis,[1][2] when the local co-chairs of the committee convened a meeting to establish the needs of the St. Louis LBGT community. The meeting established the need for a community center, and a committee to create the center was formed and developed as The Lesbian Gay Bi Transgender Community Center of Metropolitan St. Louis.[3]

Building Plans and Services[edit]

The organization currently has a facility which it is using as a community center. The facility contains an emerging multimedia library, meeting rooms, and a lounge.[3] The location was created "in an effort to create a safe and supportive as well as positive environment for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) community in the metropolitan St. Louis area."[2] The organization has outlined plans to serve the LGBT community through conversation groups, workshops, networking sessions, projects, and events.[3]

Currently, the organization distributes a monthly newsletter to readers who subscribe via its website.[citation needed]

Non-Profit Status[edit]

The organization has both federal, 501(c)3, and state (Missouri) tax-exemption as a corporation.
