“The Music Fellowship”—a 10-week music program of the LA LGBT Center—is dedicated to encouraging LGBTQ+ creativity for youth ages 17-24.
It’s a safe, collaborative space “for self-expression, mentorship, education, and creativity,” and where youth can find “their voice, passion, and community,” says Jennifer Gutierrez, the Center’s Youth Development Supervisory.
“The Music Fellowship” also provides face-to-face access and skill development with working LGBTQ+ artists like Parson James, MNDR, Justin Tranter, Jesse Saint John, and Daphne Willis.
Founded by gay rights activist Morris Kight, the center has been an inclusive hub and safe haven for five decades. It provides services and diverse programs for both the local and global LGBTQ+ community.
