Welcome to the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Center, a home away from home for sexual and gender minorities and their allies at the University of Pennsylvania. Whether you are questioning your identity, in the process of coming out, or proudly identify as LGBTQ, the Center is your space. Not only do we offer peer mentorships, tons of space to study and socialize, and a calendar full of events, we're also a social and political hub for the queer community on campus, hosting over 25 undergraduate and graduate student groups. We are one of the oldest and most active LGBT centers in the country, and have been proudly serving the Penn queer community for over 30 years. Join us at 3907 Spruce to study, relax with your friends, and learn more about Penn's LGBTQ life.  We are all committed to serving the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Pennsylvania.

At the LGBT Center you'll find: a colorful lounge furnished with plush couches and a wide-screen TV; a multi-purpose room complete with a kitchen; a library and study space stocked with hundreds of queer books; and a CyberCenter where, yes, you can print for free - as long as you bring your own paper and limit yourself to 25 pages per day.

At this time, we are no longer taking new room reservations from external groups. We will continue to reserve space for student organizations and other Penn offices. We appologize for the inconvenience.

The LGBT Center is participating in the 50th anniversary of the first Annual Reminder Day in the City of Philadlephia. Visit the Center between now and October 23rd to view our satellite instillation, Proclaiming Pride: 40 Years of LGBT History at Penn. reminder-logo_resize.jpg

The LGBT Center celebrates Native American History Month!*

Evan Adams


Evan Adams, a member of the Sliammon Frist Nations Tribe, is best known for his roles as Thomas-Builds-the-Fire from the 1998 film Smoke Signals and as Seymour Polatkin in the 2002 gay film The Business of Fancydancing. Adams has also made appearances on numerous television shows, including Da Vinci's Inquest and The L Word. In addition to helping Native American narratives gain visibility on the silver screen, Adams has also helped his community in another way--as a physician. Adams earned his medical degree in 2002, and he served as the director of the Aboriginal Health Program at the University of British Columbia. Most recently, he was appointed as the Chief Medical Officer for the First Nations Health Authority in Canada.
