The LGBT Center of Raleigh is physically closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but we continue to meet virtually! Those virtual offerings can be found here. If you have questions or are seeking resources, you can call 919-832-4484 seven days a week between the hours of 12pm and 4pm, and your call will be answered by a staff member or volunteer.

We continue to work with our partners at the Alliance of AIDS Services - Carolina on creating a plan to resume HIV and STI testing at the Center and will make an announcement by the end of July!

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Women’s Initiative

Womens Initiative Logo

The Women’s Initiative: A Program of the LGBT Center of Raleigh is a community that encourages friendship and intellectual exchange with feminists, scholars, and mentors. Our purpose is to create more intersectional and inclusive spaces for the empowerment of women everywhere.

All kinds of people are welcome to learn more at our social and speaker events. Our purpose is to educate all members of the community about women's issues and elevate the voices of women working to help marginalized communities.

Events are open to the public, i.e. organizers do not regulate who attends events and all guests will be admitted with the exception of asking for state-issued ID to serve alcohol. Organizers ask participants to acknowledge and respect the fact that the Women’s Initiative is a program for understanding the struggle of women and subverting existing cisheteropatriarchy. We do not police spaces.
