For more than a decade, the LGBTQ Center of the Cape Fear Coast, formerly The Frank Harr Foundation, has been an LGBTQ+ education and outreach organization. Our goal is to provide safe spaces for the community to gather, resources, and advocacy to fight for a better tomorrow.
The LGBTQ Center is happy to offer area youth the resources they need when navigating what it means to be a part of the greater LGBTQ+ community. We are committed to providing safe spaces for growth and inclusion through our programs, events and support for all young people- whether they have familial and peer support or not. Additionally, we conduct outreach and initiatives for individuals, families, educational and health providers who wish to gain a better understanding of how best to serve our LGBTQ+ youth.Learn More
LGBT older people live in every region of our country, from urban neighborhoods to rural counties— and everywhere in between. OWLS (Out Wilmington LGBTQ+ Seniors) is sponsored by the LGBTQ Center of the Cape Fear Coast and is an affiliate of SAGE USA – a national advocacy and services organization that has been looking out for LGBTQ elders since 1978. Our objective is to enhance the lives of LGBTQ seniors in the area by providing access to programs and activities that build up our unique community while providing a safe haven for LGBTQ older people and those that care for them.
The LGBTQ Center of the Cape Fear Coast is committed to aligning with individuals, businesses (small and large), and organizations that help us fulfill our mission of addressing the needs of our LGBTQ community. Whether through engagement with Wilmington PFLAG, OWLS, the LGBTQIA Resource Center at UNCW, Stonewall Sports and so many more, you can be confident that supporting us means you’re supporting efforts designed to improve the lives of those we serve.
