Billy DeFrank LGBTQ+ Community Center
The Billy DeFrank LGBTQ+ Community Center provides community, leadership, advocacy, services and support to the Silicon Valley’s LGBTQ People and their Allies striving to be the community's premier resource hub and a recognized leader in promoting health, strength, diversity and inclusiveness.
The center opened its doors on March 1, 1981. Today, the Billy DeFrank Center serves a large and diverse community. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people of all ages and backgrounds find resources at the Center that are not available elsewhere. Each month over a thousand people visit the current quarters on The Alameda, and many more call our Information & Resources telephone number. From as far north as Foster City and as far south as Gilroy, people visit and call seeking information, support and services.
While the DeFrank Center's history is only a little more than half the age of the Stonewall events, the movement is fueled by the events of that time. William Price (Billy DeFrank) knew it and his legacy remains a call to action for our community to continue his important work. The Center continues to fight for rights, advance liberty and justice for all, and provide opportunities for positive social identification. The DeFrank Center is “a place to call home.”
