How It Started Edit

It is said that the group had a Town Hall meeting to discuss what the needs were for their LGBT community. Out of this talk came the idea of the community center. A committee to create the center was formed and turned into The Lesbian Gay Bi Transgender Community Center of Metropolitan St. Louis.
