The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach
Welcome to The LGBTQ Center Long Beach's team page!
On November 11th, 2018 The LGBTQ Center Long Beach will be walking with hundreds of community members on our second annual AIDS Walk Long Beach benefit walk supporting local HIV prevention, education, support and care programs. Center staff, volunteers and family are welcome to join our team and walk in solidarity with agencies continuing to walk to end HIV stigma, new infections and reduce health inequities in our lifetime.
As an event as a whole, are looking to raise $25,000 and surpass our efforts from 2017. As a team, we are looking to raise $5,000 to support our in-house services linked to HIV prevention, education and care. Each dollar we raise helps support our growing HIV/STI Screening Program which sees over 1,200 clients a month, most of which are uninsured or under-insured. Your contribution will support this program which educates individuals on the importance of routine testing with zero barriers. A contribution of $100 covers a full STI panel for one person who feels safe getting tested at The Center. Contributing $50 covers the cost of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea for 5 people who may not be able to access care services anywhere else. Also, contributing $25 support the purchase of a pack of Universal or Female Condoms to prevent new HIV and STI infections. Ultimately, any amount you can raise or donate supports our mission of ending HIV in our lifetime through routine STI screening offered in affirming spaces that are open when people need them.
