Black & White Ball


On March 12 the City of Long Beach announced a prohibition on all-large scale events in city through April 30, 2020. As an organization committed to advancing he health and wellness of our community, we fully support this decision. As a result, the Center’s Black & White Ball will not be held on April 4th.

We are actively monitoring this changing situation and will have more information regarding this year’s gala soon.


The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach is proud to present The 7th Annual Black & White Ball on Saturday, April 4, 2020. The Center will be returning to host this epic event in the beautiful Pacific Ballroom at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center. One of the most sought after ticketed charity events in the City, The Black & White Ball presents guests with an evening of elegance and sophistication in the spirit of celebrating the LGBTQ community’s many achievements.

All proceeds from the Black & White Ball will support the many programs and services of The Center, the largest publicly supported LGBTQ direct services organization in greater Long Beach, which supports more than 25,000 clients per year.
