The LGBTQ Center of Central Florida: At 9 a.m. OPD John Mina and The Center staff will be serving breakfast to the community and light a special memorial display inside their new building at 946 N. Mills Ave.

This will be the first time the community sees their new LGBTQ Community Center that’s been under renovation for years.
