The mission of LGBT Community Network is to enhance the well-being of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender communities by providing activities, programs and services that create and support community; empower community members; provide essential resources; and embrace, promote and support our cultural diversity.
LGBT Community Network envisions a time when California’s Central Valley will be a welcoming and inclusive home to its LGBT community’s needs. The term LGBT refers to individuals, including, but not limited to people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and two-spirited.
In 2000 the leaders of LGBT Community Network, began as FresnoPride.com, a resource/link only website. In January 2004 our group began life as GayFresno.com to expand into news, resources and support services.
In January of 2017 our name was updated to LGBTFresno.com, and exists to educate and empower the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. Our organization provides support and resources via email, telephone and via social media.
LGBT Community Network is on a mission to build a better future for the LGBT community.
