I was so happy when the men started this business in LC but I been truly upset that they do not do more. It is very important that its here because us gays need this place. But they will not change the center that much. It is so dead when I visit. It needs life. And one of them is so negative. I dont like being there when he comes out of his office. The lesbians are nice but all they do is work. One of them is nice to me. But its not fun. I can tell they are not in tune like other centers I visited. They desperately need some help.

The center's a little small and could use a little fixing up, but the idea behind it is great and I believe that with the support of the community (both the LGBTQ one and the Las Cruces community in general) it can make great changes. I'm very excited to have worked with the center and to have further opportunities to do so. Please stop in!

When my son came out , it was no surprise or different for me as his mother. His father had a difficult time understanding and accepting our sons lifestyle. I turned to the center for resources to share with him. The center was also a place where our son could go to see and experience real social acceptance. I am pleased that my son felt & knew he had another place to feel that acceptance. Several years later he is happily married to a man, who treats him with love & respect.

I love this place! I don't get to come to the center or to events as often as I'd like to because I'm busy with school and work, but when I do, everyone is so welcoming it doesn't matter if it's my first time or first time in a while. The center provides great information and resources, as well as a safe place to be yourself and meet new people--which is what I really needed when I first moved here not too long ago. It's great to have a community there for you in a variety of ways...Thanks everyone :)
