LGBT Switchboard 24-Hour Helpline (formerly Gay & Lesbian Switchboard Houston)

LGBT Switchboard - Houston


Gay & Lesbian Switchboard Houston has been on the line for Houston’s LGBT community since 1982. With support from the United Way of Greater Houston, Texas Office of the Attorney General and community partners, the Montrose Center and the Switchboard remain vital links for LGBT individuals throughout Southeast Texas who have become targets of domestic violence and sexual assault. Anyone, regardless of sexual orientation, may contact the Switchboard if they have become a hate crime target.
