Community Resource Guide

This Resource Guide - and the LGBT Center which produced it -  was prepared to acquaint you with those resources, as well as with organizations and activities in the greater Philadelphia area. The community beyond Penn offers many valuable opportunities and we urge you to take full advantage of them, whether through your membership or offering volunteer services. Becoming involved is a rewarding experience, both for you and your organization of choice, and we hope you choose to do so.

Though this Guide was intended to be extensive, we're sure we've missed a few things here and there. And, though all of the listings have been verified to be correct, community and campus organizations wax and wane and details change quickly. Please notify the Center of any omissions or incorrect listings. The online version you are looking at right now is the most up to date version.

We hope that you find the Resource Guide useful and that your experiences at Penn and in the Philadelphia area are fulfilling and enjoyable.
