Commonly known as “the 519,” this community centre strives to offer service and support to the LGBT community of greater Toronto. The 519 offers countless resources aimed at promoting community improvement, civic activism, volunteer events, and network opportunities within the local LGBT culture. The community centre has been in operation since 1975, and is certainly one of Toronto’s most visible beacons for the LGBT community.
