Because we are all about being fierce changemakers at Ginger, we are donating $1,000 a month to charities we aggressively appreciate for the work they do to uplift, light up, and elevate this collective human experience. This month, Ginger Salon is extremely happy to support the Q Center, which provides safe spaces, community building and empowerment for the positive transformation of LGBTQ2SIA+ communities and allies in the Pacific Northwest.

As the largest LGBTQ+ community center in the Pacific Northwest, Q Center proudly serves the LGBTQ2SIA+ communities of Portland Metro and Southwest Washington. Their drop-in and event space on North Mississippi Avenue is a frequent first stop for new arrivals in Portland - and for longtime residents who are newly out or questioning their sexual or gender identity. Q Center also serves as an information hub for friends, partners, community, and family members of LGBTQ2SIA+ individuals. Utilizing a collaborative approach, Q Center seeks out ways to share resources with other nonprofits and public institutions locally and statewide.
