San Diego LGBT Community Center founders Bernie Michels and George Murphy pass away

We are deeply saddened to share with our Center community that two of our Center Founders, Bernie Michels and George Murphy, passed away.Bernie Michels chaired the very first planning committee in 1971 to start a gay center for social services, that later became The Center, the second oldest LGBT center in the country.

Bernie left San Diego decades ago for the East Coast, but stayed in touch and came back to San Diego to attend The Center’s anniversary galas.
