The Center regularly offers a wide variety of arts, culture and entertainment events. From book readings and movie screenings, to comedy shows, theater, dance performances and much more, our lineup of talent offers something for everyone looking to be a part of the LGBT arts community.

Arts & Cultural Programs

The Center is at the heart of the diverse LGBT artistic communities in New York City. It is where, on any given day, you can catch a premiere on our 22-foot screen, hear dynamic musical talent, listen as prominent authors and public figures discuss their work, enjoy an inspired dance performance, observe thought-provoking visual art or attend a theatrical presentation.

The Center is your arts and entertainment hub, with creative outlets for all of your artistic desires. Come see for yourself what The Center has for you.

Showcase Your Work

Our beautifully-renovated building creates an ideal backdrop for artists and performers to present their work. Community members interested in submitting a proposal-for-presentation to The Center’s arts and cultural programming department may use the application form below. We strive to present audiences with a variety of offerings, and this process allows for diverse and multi-faceted community members to share their vision with us.

In addition to partnering with select artists and performers to showcase their work as part of Center programming, we also offer affordable and modern rental spaces for those who wish to express their creativity within our walls independent of the cultural programs department. Why not bring your art to The Center and enjoy the modern technology and vibrant energy our space provides?


Recognizing the importance of our history and culture, The Center serves as both a home for original work by artists including Keith Haring and David LaChapelle, and to document LGBT history and our community’s contributions to arts, media and culture in our archive and library. The Center is also the proud home to one of the city’s only queer bookstores and cultural event spaces, The Bureau of General Services—Queer Division.
