The Casal Lambda is a non-profit association that aims to normalize homosexuality. The lack of this social recognition often leads gays and lesbians to shut down their sexual and affective lives in closed circles and cause them difficulties to assume while at the same time giving rise to discrimination.
Since 1976, and being the first center of these characteristics created in Spain, Casal Lambda offers gays and lesbians an important meeting and orientation space. It has an information and documentation center on sexuality aimed at professionals and researchers. The Casal Lambda carries out an important project of social projection with its cultural activities and the continuous work of sensitization towards the public institutions, the political parties and the society as a whole.
