Long Beach’s LGBTQ history will soon be memorialized by the city with its new LGBTQ Cultural District.
Recommended by Mayor Robert Garcia, city staff were set to work with stakeholders to create the vision for the district along the Broadway corridor.
Last week, the city held a visioning event for the cultural district at Bixby Park Community Center.
LGBTQ+ community members who were unable to attend can participate in the visioning process through a survey that will be available until Nov. 9.
The session and the survey are designed to solicit feedback on LGBTQ+ priorities for the new district. Final recommendations and possible options will be presented to the council in the coming months.
Questions can be directed to LGBTQVisioning@longbeach.gov.
