Liberation House

1971 1984
1168 N Edgemont St, Los Angeles, CA 90029

The GCSC opened the initial "Liberation House," the nation's first facility for homeless gay adults and youth. This would be followed later that year by four additional "Liberation Houses" (one exclusively for female adults and youth), a fifth free overnight "crash pad" for up to 12 men and women. A sixth, opened in 1972, was co-ed.
