We are conveniently located at 522 West Maple Street, adjacent to the Community Parking Deck at 6th and Walnut streets (which also provides free bicycle parking) and within close walking distance to LANta's Allentown Transit Center.

Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center provides cultural, education, and health promotion programs and direct services to strengthen and support the LGBT community across the Greater Lehigh Valley.


Our PFLAG Mission:
To promote the health and well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons, their families, and friends through: 

  • support -- to cope with an adverse society,
  • education -- to inform and enlighten the public, and
  • advocacy -- to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights.
PFLAG, a non-profit organization, provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
