Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center provides a range of ways to create and build community -- here in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. Many offer virtual or hybrid options to connect.

Bradbury-Sullivan Center hosts a number of different community discussion and social support groups both in-person and virtually. Meetings with virtual components feature live closed captioning.

Arts & Culture Programs

Our arts and culture programs are intended to be fun, educational, and social community events. All arts & culture programs are alcohol-free events at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center. Unless stated otherwise, all events are virtual and feature live closed captioning.

Youth and Family Building Programs

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center provides a variety of youth programs to build youth leadership, build community, encourage healthy living, and to promote artistic expression for LGBTQ+ youth in the Lehigh Valley. We believe in a brave space model where our center is an affirming space for LGBTQ+ youth to be themselves. 

A parent or guardian must accompany youth program participants under 14. Adults who are not accompanying a child may not attend youth programming. Community partners and press must receive advanced staff approval to attend any youth program.

The Lehigh Valley LGBTQ+ Community Archive exists to collect, preserve, and provide access to the rich LGBTQ community history of the Lehigh Valley. The archive is a program of Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center offered to the community in partnership with Trexler Library at Muhlenberg College.
