Founded in 1975 as the Gay Community Center of Philadelphia, William Way LGBT Community Center has been providing life-saving and life-affirming services to the community in Philadelphia for 40 years. This year, we are inviting all of our community members, past, present, and future, to join in the celebration with us. We want to tell and preserve your stories and memories related to the LGBT community in Philadelphia, while also continuing to lay out the vision for a successful future for the Center and its members.
