We're having a soft opening of our LGBTQIA+ community center on Monday, June 3 from 10am-4pm.

Stop by 1100 Truman Avenue to see the space, share some stories, enjoy some light refreshments, and dream the future. This is going to be a very laid back affair, but we are so very excited to show you what we've been working on.

We will be having a grand opening party in the future. This being Key West and the summer being quiet and more-or-less unbearable, we'll be planning a celebration later in the year when our summer travelers return and the heat isn't so oppressive.

In the meantime, we're excited to open and to start serving the community.

Love is love. Community is everything.

WE'RE HOME!

After over two and a half years, Queer Keys has a space of our own! And soon enough, the Key West LGBTQIA+ community will have a community center of their own.

We’re excited to announce that we have leased 1100 Truman Avenue to serve as our headquarters. The space is perfect for our current programs and offers us time and space to expand what we offer. It also will allow members of the community to provide offerings that they might be dreaming of.

We’ve got a lot of work to do to get it up and running, and we have a several-months-long permitting process to move through with the city before we can operate as a “community center” in this historic district, so haaaang tight. For now, however, we are CELEBRATING this momentous step for Queer Keys.

Key West deserves a space for our queer community to gather, organize, and find support. We’re looking forward to seeing how this space comes to life.

We’re also going to be needing some volunteer help to prep, paint, install, build, and do all the things to get this space ready in the next few months. If you’re interested in helping, shoot us an email at info@queerkeys.org to get on our volunteer list AND keep your eyes peeled on our socials.

Love is love. Community is everything.


Queer Keys voted Best Nonprofit Key West in OUTSFL Your Choice Awards 2023!

Thank you to everyone who voted in OUTSFL's Your Choice Awards 2023 for voting Queer Keys Best Nonprofit Key West!

This recognition means so much to us as we continue to grow and expand our work, and it helps us to reach new supporters throughout south Florida. We were up against several well-established organizations that are doing really important work, so we’re having a little Sally Field moment right now. “You like us, you really like us!”

LAUNCHING OUR TRANS TRUST FUND

We are incredibly excited to launch the Trans Trust Fund, a fund for any Florida Keys residents living under the trans umbrella seeking financial support for gender-affirming care services.

This resource has been a dream for Queer Keys since our founding, and with a $5,000 seed contribution from Queer Keys, we are incredibly excited to see this fund come to fruition. 

Currently, we are offering limited financial support for Laser Hair Removal, Hormone Replacement Therapy, Gender-Affirming Surgery, and general Financial Assistance. We know that there are a lot of barriers to thriving as a trans or gender nonconforming person in the Florida Keys, and we strive to alleviate that burden in some small way.
