LGBTQ+ Clinic – The Alexis Project

A partnership between The Alexis Arquette Family Foundation and Violence Intervention Program (VIP) at the LAC+USC Medical Center, The Alexis Project is an extension of VIP’s hallmark medical, mental health and support programs targeted at the LGBTQ+ population.

Queer youth can find safety at the Alexis Project with specialized medical and mental health staff who understand their needs. We’re working to normalize health and mental health support for all LGBTQ+ patients, and it is our hope to create a standard of care that will spark a national movement to improve access and services for all people without prejudice.
