L.A. GAY & LESBIAN CENTER
As one of the largest HIV/AIDS service organizations in the world, the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center has been developing widely-acclaimed programs to prevent new HIV infections since the earliest days of the epidemic and provides free, rapid HIV tests to nearly 1,000 people each month.
For the many people with HIV/AIDS unable to afford medical care, the Center’s Jeffrey Goodman Clinic offers free, expert healthcare, medicine and counseling, as well as access to its clinical trials of promising new treatments.
Nationally, the Center is a leader and forceful advocate for sound policy regarding the rights and well-being of people living with HIV.
