LGBTQ+ literature & media
a sober, all ages, inclusive space

We are a hub of learning and connection for Sacramento’s LGBTQ+ community.
LLACE envisions a safe, inclusive, and supportive LGBTQ+ community in the Sacramento region.
We value inclusivity - creating a safe and accessible place for all people to be comfortable in, allowing honesty and authenticity.
We value community - connecting people and organizations, building relationships and partnerships, providing space and support for events.
We value social justice - taking a stand to support non-dominant populations and historically marginalized groups (specifically QPOC), promoting nonviolent resistance, awareness and activism
We value LGBTQ+ stories - local, national, and international history, books and magazines, video and audio recordings, oral histories, storytelling, archives
