Atlanta Gay Center

The Atlanta Gay Center was a community center that served the gay community in Atlanta, Georgia (United States). It was founded in 1976.[1] It has since closed and been replaced by the Atlanta Gay and Lesbian Community Center.

The center published a bi-weekly newspaper, and operated the Gay Helpline for the Atlanta area. The center was the meeting place for several support groups including those for teens, interracial couples, older couples, and P-FLAG.[2]

During the early 1980s, in the early days of HIV/AIDS awareness, the Atlanta Gay Center offered free testing and support groups.
