Updated Parking Protocol
The LGBTQ Center Long Beach is pleased to offer all guests, visitors, volunteers and staff free parking in the back parking lot while in the vicinity. The parking lot is intended to increase the public's access to life-saving resources in addition to the numerous social and support groups where members of our community can find validating spaces. Those parked in the lot while not utilizing Center services are preventing others the chance to access their community space. Please support our members by only utilizing the parking lot while patronizing The Center. All unauthorized  vehicles will be towed at the vehicle owner's expense. 

If you are a guest of The Center and are parked in the lot you 
must provide the make, model, and license plate number of your vehicle to the front desk staff. This ensures that your vehicle is authorized to park while at The Center only. Vehicles may not be left in the parking lot after the owner has left the building for any purpose.   

We sincerely thank you all for your understanding and cooperation as we seek to make our space accessible to those who need it most.
