You must first submit an inquiry in order to tour any of the Center’s facilities. The Center is an active campus serving a large number of clients and members of the community, therefore some spaces are inaccessible to the public at set times. You may find more information and photos on our virtual tour here.
The Los Angeles LGBT Center is an active campus and some areas are open community spaces. Some spaces can be made private upon request, but this is not always guaranteed and depends on the time/day of your booking. Some spaces are more suited to private events than others, please discuss with the Center events team if you have concerns about public access to your event.

If you are planning to serve alcoholic beverages, the event must comply with California’s Alcoholic Beverage Control (“A.B.C.”) policies, including proper licensing for the sale of alcoholic beverages.

We allow a 14-day grace period from when your Booking Agreement is signed for any cancellations without penalty. All bookings require a deposit of 30% of your booking total upon confirmation. If you choose to cancel your booking past the 14-day grace period, your original 30% deposit will be forfeited.
