“Grace and Frankie” star Lily Tomlin joined comedian Kathy Griffin at a block party celebration to help launch Los Angeles LGBT Center’s new campus.
After breaking ground nearly two years ago, the Anita May Rosenstein campus is said to be the world’s first intergenerational LGBTQ facility, serving both LGBTQ seniors and youth. The Campus includes drop-in centers for both youth and seniors as well as 100 beds for homeless youth. The Ariadne Getty youth academy provides educational services. Phase two of the project, set to be completed in a few months, will include 99 apartments for seniors.
In the future, the facility will also serve as the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s flagship facility, replacing the the center’s current headquarters, which are set to transform entirely into a health center. The center will also mark its 50th anniversary with a gala and concert on Sept. 21 at the Greek Theatre.
