The purpose of the LGBTQ Resource Center at the Gulfport Public Library is not only to provide a welcoming communal space to the large LGBTQ population of Gulfport and Pinellas County, but also to establish a sense of awareness and advocacy for a segment of the Gulfport community that is ingrained in the very fabric of the community; it’s history, unique sensibility, and accepting creative spirit. The LGBTQ Resource Center is a project of the non-profit Circle of Friends of the Gulfport Public Library.
