Upcoming LGBTQ+ Events in Akron

This year, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Akron AIDS Collaborative opened the Bayard Rustin LGBTQ+ Resource Center, in Akron, Ohio. It’s a safe space for people who identify as queer, to hang out and use services, such as a free clothing bank, designed for trans people, called Rustin’s Rack; free HIV and COVID-19 testing; case management services, for people who currently don’t have housing, or need help navigating social services, such as food stamps; and much, much more.
