GLO Center Re-opening Celebration

Friday, October 19th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm

GLO Center: 518 E Commercial St., Springfield, MO 65803

Since 1996, the doors of the GLO Center have been open for all LGBTQ+ people as a welcoming and safe space. As Springfield and its surrounding areas have grown, so has the need for the GLO Center to grow and keep pace with the quickly changing face of the LGBTQ+ population and its place. We asked our community what changes GLO needed to make. Our community answered.

We’ve remodeled and restored our beautiful building on 518 E. Commercial. The GLO Center now has comfortable daily seating for over 40 people with internet and computer access, a fully stocked kitchen, and a library focused on LGBTQ+ life. We are revitalizing what it means to be The GLO Center, to honor the legacy of the members who started the GLO Center, and to acknowledge the changing face of the LGBTQ+ community beyond the L and G. We are rolling out new programming with a wide array of activities for YOU!

We have more major goals ahead of us, including adding part-time staff, and we need you to help us get there.

Come join us to celebrate the newly remodeled and restored GLO Center on Friday, October 19 from 4- 8 pm and find out about our revitalization! Make sure to check out our new sustaining memberships to help us continue to meet our goals and forge into the future:

We will be offering drinks and light hors d'œuvres. The event is free. A schedule will be posted soon.
