Who is Jim Toy?

The name “Jim Toy” is synonymous with the queer movement in the state of Michigan. The first publicly “out” man in Michigan (1970), Jim established the first campus center in history devoted to the support of sexual minority group members. His status as a TBLG icon is based on over 40 years of tireless effort to create safety and equality for people of all sexual and gender preferences through his speaking, teaching, writing, administrating, organizing, and protesting. The Jim Toy Community Center is honored to be associated with his name and to dedicate its work to his causes. 

Our Mission

We envision an inclusive community where people of diverse sexual orientation and gender identity are visible and live together in equality, respect and happiness.

Our Vision

The Jim Toy Community Center is a resource center that exists to provide information, education, social events, and advocacy by and for the Queer and Ally community in the Washtenaw County area. JTCC welcomes all who support its mission to participate in its activities.
