Valley LGBTQ center reopens in wake of the pandemic

Facility has been closed for more than a year

EL CENTRO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - After more than a year, the doors at the Imperial Valley LGBT Resource Center are open again.

Thursday night the center will host a peer group meeting for parents and family members of those who identify as L-G-B-T. The hope is to help those who've been struggling through the pandemic.

“All of a sudden there is mixed emotions. What do i do with this? What’s the best step forward to help my loved one, my child,” said Rosa Diaz, the center's CEO.

Diaz says the group will help those who might have guilt or difficulty understanding these complex issues. She says the center welcomes everyone.

The group starts meeting Thursday night and six. Afterwards it will come together on the third Thursday of the month.
