Laugh, Learn, and Educate With Us This February!

Dear Friends,

February is always an exciting time of the year here at the LGBTQ CenterOC. We’re thrilled to invite you to attend one of our most popular events of the year, along with some new and exciting opportunities that we just can’t stop talking about!

On February 12, we are partnering with OC Community Foundation and 6 other organizations for Love Is – Giving Day. For this year’s Giving Day, we are focusing on promoting healthy teen relationships.

 The LGBTQ Center OC serves over 3,000 youth each year, providing safe spaces, education, support, empowerment, and health connections.There is currently an STI epidemic in Orange County, with chlamydia and gonorrhea rapidly on the rise. Our FREE HIV AND STI SCREENING services help thousands of community members per year get access to better answers and faster results. Help us continue providing these crucial services to the community by joining us on February 12. Your donation and continued support is much appreciated!

In the mood for laugh and love this season? You’re in luck! Make sure to bring your special Valentine to Sips & Giggles 2019! This year, we are proud to have Rhea Butcher as our headlining comedian, with an opening act byDaniel Franzese of Mean Girls! This is one of our most popular events of the year, and the proceeds from this fun night of comedy go towards our continued service of over 12,000 community members per year. Tickets are selling out fast – Get yours today!

We will also be a presenter at HRC’s Time to THRIVE annual conference, which will be held in Anaheim this year! From Feb. 15-17, youth-serving professionals and youths in leadership will have the opportunity to attend powerful workshops, participate in diverse panels, and learn more about how they can stay proactive and empowered in their communities. The LGBTQCenter OC will be offering an LGBTQ 101 panel as well as a youth-led, youth-only workshop on February 17th. Sign up today, as spaces are limited!

We want to thank you for your continued support of the Center.
