LGBTQ+ center Destination Tomorrow opens its doors to the community in Atlanta, Ga. on May 2, 2022. Known for providing crucial services including healthcare, career readiness and financial literacy, the organization, which started as the only LGBTQ+ center in the Bronx, heads south to expand access to underserved communities in a city with a large LGTBQ+ population of color. Destination Tomorrow believes that everybody deserves to have access to a space where they can grow, learn and flourish, regardless of their sexual identity or gender expression and without having to leave their own neighborhood.
“We are thrilled to expand our organization nationally and open our first location outside of New York City. Atlanta has a large LGBTQ+ population and, specifically, is home to many Trans and Gender Non-Conforming (TGNC) individuals of color. Organizations’ services often cater to white LGB folks and, as a Black Trans man, I recognize the importance of representation and saw a need for a center with a community-led approach,” said Sean Ebony Coleman, Destination Tomorrow’s founder and executive director. “We pride ourselves on being closely connected with the community and are looking forward to building relationships with and responding to the specific needs of LGBTQ+ folks in Atlanta.”
Atlanta is home to one of the highest LGBTQ+ populations per capita, with 40% of youth who are experiencing homelessness identifying as LGBTQ+. Destination Tomorrow aims to work with the community on closing the gap in resources and increasing Black TGNC representation.
Monday-Friday from 10am - 6pm.
