Napa County's LGBTQ Hub

Napa County, California is only about an hour north of San Francisco, but it can seem like worlds apart in terms of visibility and acceptance for the estimated 11,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) people that call Napa County home. To that end, LGBTQ Connection is developing a vibrant community while increasing inclusion and well-being for LGBTQ people across Napa County. LGBTQ Connection promotes LGBTQ leadership, supports underserved people, develops partnerships, builds the community's capacity to include and welcome LGBTQ people, increases visibility and serves as Napa County's LGBTQ hub.
