Hi all, we want to be as transparent with our members and friends as possible. Due to unforeseen circumstances on behalf of the State Theater and Community Center we can no longer function as a entity out of that building. We are hoping to be moving into a new space on February 1st – until then, we have moved our support groups and meetings to different locations throughout downtown Eau Claire. Because there are no working utilities at the State Theater, our phone is also not accessible. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond in a timely manner. You can also donate to CVLGBT+ here as we have very little information on when or if we will be seeing a return on our pre-paid rent. Thank you for your continued support. We want to embrace challenges, as it’s something to make us stronger.
Due to a power outage at our State Theater location; all events scheduled to take place there in the near future can be expected to be cancelled.
The trans* support group scheduled for the 26th is included in this cancellation, with the possibility of being held at an alternative location or having a make-up session in the coming week.
Updates on the situation will be provided as they become available.
Hello! Welcome to the Chippewa Valley LGBTQ+ Community Center’s webpage. The Center has spent the last several years creating a safe and equitable region for those who identify as LGBTQ+. As a growing organization, we have seen a lot of changes, but we never have lost sight of making sure that LGBTQ+ individuals in western Wisconsin are accepted, respected, and protected. As we move forward into 2020, this mission does not change. We want a thriving community that promotes understanding, tolerance, and acceptance. We will not settle for anything less.
As the new year approaches, we want to look back at what we achieved in 2019.
- The CV LGBTQ+ Community Center held their annual Pride in the Park in Phoenix Park, Eau Claire where approximately 500 people attended and enjoyed vendors, food, and a drag show.
- We worked alongside Eau Claire County Board Supervisor Zoe Roberts to pass a resolution with the City of Eau Claire to recognize Transgender Awareness Week in November as well as Transgender Day of Remembrance.
- Queer Prom, where over 70 students from the Chippewa Valley attended, was a huge success!
- We moved to our best location yet: Downtown! In the State Theater and Community Center.
There have been several other achievements that happened throughout the year, and I want to personally thank all of our volunteers and board members who made it happen. I’m so glad to work alongside them. They are truly one of the greatest groups of people I’ve met.
2020 is going to be an amazing and busy year for all of us! We look forward to everything that the Center is going to accomplish. Pride in the Park 2020 is going to be June 13th at Phoenix Park in Eau Claire once again. If you are interested in planning and volunteering at the event, email: email@example.com.

Thank you, Happy Holidays! See you in 2020.
