Biennial LGBTQ Center Survey Report

The MAP/CenterLink LGBTQ Community Center Survey Report gets to the heart of trends driving the LGBT Community Center movement – giving members  an overview of local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ) community centers, including their capacity, their programs and services, the people they serve, and their technical assistance needs.  These reports help LGBTQ organizations and donors better understand the unique role that community centers play in the LGBTQ movement, as well as centers’ needs and capacities.
