Who We Are
Founded in 2005, QSpot fosters the health, well-being and pride of NJ’s LGBT and allied community by providing resources, referrals, education, and outreach. QSpot works tirelessly to fulfill its mission while operating a safe and welcoming LGBT community center in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
QSpot’s LGBT Community Center is a gathering spot for NJ’s LGBT and allied community, a place where individuals, groups and families can go to be social, have fun, find support and grow. QSpot is the only LGBT community center serving the diverse cities of Asbury Park, Ocean Grove, Red Bank, Long Branch, Toms River and more.
Over it’s short history as a community center (since 2013), QSpot has become one of the state’s leaders, providing unique services that address many unmet needs in the community.
QSpot provides vital services to this under-served community using an all-volunteer, community based model. QSpot’s services include education, advocacy, and support for LGBT youth, LGBT seniors, parents and families of LGBT, mental health counseling, 12-step recovery groups, Buddy Program for LGBT 50 +, support groups, social clubs, book club and more. QSpot is also a meeting place for other LGBT organizations and individuals looking for a welcoming place to hold important professional and personal events.
QSpot is also home to the arts, proudly supporting the QSpot Marching and Concerts Bands, and producing QFEST New Jersey LGBT Film and Digital Media Festival, NJ’s only LGBT film festival, as well as art exhibitions, musical performances and book readings.
