Serving Oakland’s Diverse & Vibrant LGBTQ+ Community

Serving Oakland’s Diverse & Vibrant LGBTQ+ Community

MISSION
The Oakland LGBTQ Community Center Inc. is committed to supporting and enhancing the well-being of LGBTQ individuals, our families and allies.

HISTORY
The Oakland LGBTQ Community Center was founded by Jeff Myers and Joe Hawkins and established as a non-profit corporation in June of 2017. Joe Hawkins, who was the initial organizer and a founding member of Oakland Pride, is the center's first Executive Director. Jeff Myers, who also worked as a volunteer coordinator with Oakland Pride, is the center's first Board President.
The center headquarters offices opened in July of 2017, in the Co-Munity shared office spaces, located at 3207 Lakeshore Ave., in Oakland's beautiful Lake Merritt district. The creation of this new service in Oakland, marks the first time in our city's history, that an organization has ever opened a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, intergenerational, LGBTQ community center.

OUR VISION
To become Oakland’s premier network of programs and services for the LGBTQ community.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES
The principles that guide the actions of the center's board, staff and volunteers, as well as the design and implementation of all Center programs, are:
- Inclusiveness and diversity founded on human and civil rights for all,
- leveraging our HQ space as a gathering place for learning and leadership opportunities that help build community,
- Financial stability and integrity,
- Collaboration with consumers and other community agencies to provide a continuum of care and services,
- Compassionate, quality service delivery,
- Continual quality improvement,
- Leadership development,
