OutCentral’s mission is to connect, educate, empower, and build a positive, energy-filled space for greater Nashville’s diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.

The Oasis Center provides at risk youth a connection to a caring adult, a safe & secure environment, and empowerment to make better choices.

LGBTI patients experience disparities in access to and quality of care, leading to preventable, adverse health outcomes including elevated risk for specific chronic diseases and increased rates of suicide and depression. The Vanderbilt Program for LGBTI Health works to address these disparities, improve the health of LGBTI patients, support education around LGBTI Health, and foster research on the optimal ways to care for LGBTI patients and families.


Vanderbilt’s Trans Buddy Program’s goal is to increase access to care and improve healthcare outcomes for transgender people by providing emotional support to transgender patients during healthcare visits. We emphasize a patient-centered approach, with the goal of empowering the patient to make informed healthcare decisions. Trans Buddy recognizes the importance of intersectionality to our direct care practice, and we therefore aim to work with people of all identities with compassion and respect.

PFLAG Nashville provides free support for parents and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. We are here to listen, encourage, guide, and assist you as you work to understand what it means to be LGBT.

PFLAG is not a religious or political organization. We’re a national non-profit organization focused on helping family and friends accept their LGBT loved ones. It’s that simple.

At GLSEN, we want every student, in every school, to be valued and treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. We believe that all students deserve a safe and affirming school environment where they can learn and grow..
