ABOUT US

​MISSION AND HISTORY

MISSION

The mission of the Lower Columbia Q Center is to be a safe and welcoming resource and support service to the LGBTIQIA+ community, friends, families and allies of the Lower Columbia Region.

HISTORY

The Lower Columbia Q Center (LCQC) was founded in 2014 by a group of individuals who saw the need for an organization that would be a safe, welcoming resource and advocate for the LGBTIQIA+ community, friends, families, and allies of the Lower Columbia Region.

In 2016, the LCQC held the first annual Astoria Pride. Since that time, Astoria Pride has grown into a bigger, better, and more fierce advocacy, awareness, and community event. 

In February of 2020 LCQC moved into a permanent home at 171 W. Bond Street. This move allows this organization to better support our community.
