Tampa Bay has a strong history of organizations providing services to the LGBTQ+ community. Some of these organizations are more ‘LGBTQ+ intentional’—meaning it’s very clear that they serve the LGBTQ+ community. But others are more ‘LGBTQ+ incidental’—meaning they serve LGBTQ+ individuals as a part of their larger client populations. But in either case, these organizations are faced with the never-ending challenge of funding—for both planned and unplanned needs. This is especially true as these organizations continue to serve an ever-widening array of LGBTQ+ audiences and needs, including LGBTQ+ homelessness, transgender and other gender identity issues, aging, the LGBTQ+ disability population, healthcare & ACA navigation, mental health, domestic violence, family therapy, health & wellness, and many more. In short, the list of audiences and needs is lengthy—and ever-growing.
