El Centro

 

The PARAGUAYAN LGBT COMMUNITY CENTER is based on a beautifully restored house on the Independencia Nacional 1032 street. This is a permanent home since 2013, when it was acquired by SOMOSGAY. It is designed as a space to give a home for the birth, care and celebration of our organizations, institutions and our culture, to take care of our people and groups in greatest need, educate the public and our community in the diversity that characterize us.

It is also the place of origin of our innovative range of social services and home of the operational office of SOMOSGAY, where our work to advocate for public health, education and other public policies, as well as our recreation programs are planned. It also serves as an incubator for grassroots groups who wish to meet here, that have no place for their activities. From this place, LESVOS, a group of lesbian women has emerged, as well as the national youth advocacy network called DIVERSA, among others.

The Community Center offers rooms and meeting spaces that can be reserved for private events.

It is also home of the Kuimba'e Clinic, a men’s wellness center that offers free services to our community.

SOMOSGAY supports this initiative as a priority in its work, and is currently working to establish similar centers across the country.
