The LGBT Visitor Center in Miami Beach, at 1130 Washington Avenue opens its door with Pride to thousands of tourists from around the globe each year and now we are also much, much more! It’s our vibrant local community that makes Miami Beach one of the top LGBT destinations in the world! Our community deserves a “home base” where everyone can feel safe and welcomed. As Executive Director, I knew I wanted this to be my mission.

The LGBT Visitor Center is the perfect site for a multitude of local programming. We’ve added weekly support groups including Narcotics Anonymous and Smart Recovery, Yoga and Dance classes, Educational Workshops and an array of Social Events to the calendar.

The scheduled workshops include topics such as Gay Women’s Health, Financial Planning, LGBT Family Building, Gay Guide to Legal Marriage and Transgender – “The Life of the Third Gender.” Each facilitator is an impressive professional in their field of expertise.
