Center’s dream becomes reality

Time Out Youth Center finally ‘at home’ in new permanent facility, grand opening announced

In 1990, Tonda Taylor, along with human services professionals, educators, physicians and clergy, assembled to discuss the needs of young LGBTQ individuals who were struggling with their sexual orientation. They knew that there was a desperate need for a place for them to turn for help and support. So on April 8, 1991, four gay and lesbian youth gathered for a discussion group under the guidance of Taylor and others for what would later become the premier organization in the Charlotte, N.C. area to address the needs of LGBTQ youth.
