In the LGBTQ community, many times our family isn’t the one we’re born into, but the one we choose.
Thankfully, Cleveland has plenty of organizations to help with that — from dozens of open and affirming churches to a community center that’s been in operation for more than 40 years; from gay-friendly university groups to health clinics that specialize in LGBTQ health needs.
Whether you’re here for a weekend or moving here for a lifetime, there are plenty of resources to assist you in finding a community that makes you feel like you’re home.
