As the LGBTQ Center of Durham has grown, so have our programs. In January of 2019, we hired our first full-time staff members and our momentum has not ceased. Please see below a list of our flagship programs and their respective websites.
Friends Aging Quirkily
FAQ* is a collaborative effort to build community among LGBTQ+ folks aged 50+ in & around Durham. Partners include the LGBTQ Center of Durham, Transitions LifeCare, and the Durham Center for Senior Life (DCSL)
Project FAM services are low barrier, free of cost, and support folks living in the Triangle region of NC with a focus on folks living in Durham.
The Center's library is close to being a fully-functioning lending library. Our volunteers have begun entering our current collection, cataloging, and setting up our future and circulation management using TinyCat.
Though it is still a work in progress you can begin to get a sneak peek at our collection here via TinyCat and LibraryThing.
LGBTQ Youth Center
The LGBTQ Center of Durham received support from the city through participatory budgeting in 2019 to receive start up funds to open the LGBTQ Youth Center in 2020. The planning process is underway and other non-profits such as iNSIDEoUT are being engaged to assist with the planning. A Youth Advisory Council will be formed once the structures for the Center are in place.
