The Atlanta Gay Center was a community center that served the gay community in Atlanta, Georgia. Founded in 1976, the center was one of the oldest gay community centers in the United States. It has since closed and been replaced by the Atlanta Gay and Lesbian Community Center.
The center published a bi-weekly newspaper, and operated the Gay Helpline for the Atlanta area. The center was the meeting place for several support groups including those for teens, interracial couples, older couples, and PFLAG.
During the early 1980s, when AIDS was just being noticed, the Atlanta Gay Center offered free AIDS testing and support groups.
When the center closed, all of their operating files, news release files, and all other related historical documentation were given to the Atlanta History Center on West Paces Ferry Road, and is available for research purposes.
