Help support programs and services for underserved LGBTQ2S communities
The 519 is Canada's largest and most influential LGBTQ2S community centre. Since 1976, The 519 has worked for inclusion, acceptance, and awareness of LGBTQ2S rights in Toronto and beyond. We are a City of Toronto agency, and a registered charity, with a unique approach to community building that allows us to deliver direct service, accessible space and ongoing leadership that makes a real difference in people's lives while promoting broader understanding and respect. In 2017/18, we had over 93,000 visits to the programs and services run by our staff, and over 200 community-led groups hosted 4,012 events in our spaces.
