Our mission

You are welcome.


The William Way LGBT Community Center encourages, supports and advocates for the well-being and acceptance of sexual and gender minorities in the Greater Philadelphia region through service, recreational, educational and cultural programming.

In these challenging times, the William Way LGBT Community Center, and what it represents, has evolved to meet the needs of the diverse people it serves 365 days a year.

In the past year alone, the center has developed and strengthened its programming for LGBT refugees, intimate partner violence awareness and prevention, and programs for the senior and trans communities. These are in addition to the Center’s long established arts, culture and community programming initiatives.

The strength of the William Way is greatly enhanced when community members like you engage with our staff, connect with other members and participate in our vital programming. We invite your feedback and ideas, so can continue to find new ways to serve our community.
