The LGBT Center of Raleigh is the Center of Out for Raleigh, the Triangle and Central North Carolina. It belongs to each and every one

of us and we all should embrace the project and claim ownership. It is what we make it and the potential is here to make this the best

Center in the Southeast, if not the country.
