Candice Nichols

Candice Nichols proudly served as the Executive Director for The Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada (The Center) from December 2004 to 2013. Under her leadership, The Center expanded programs to serve the youth, senior citizens and mainstream LGBTQ community. Nichols forged partnerships with local organizations and agencies which transformed The Center into a central hub for those seeking services and acceptance. Nichols increased the visibility and awareness of The Center and also addressed the new challenges Southern Nevada faced as a community involved in the social justice movement. Prior to joining The Center, Nichols worked for several Southern Nevada nonprofits. In the early 1990’s she held the position of Director of Public Affairs at Planned Parenthood of Southern Nevada, and then during the height of the AIDS epidemic became Director of Prevention Education for 11.5 years at Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN), the largest AIDS Service Organization in Southern Nevada. Candice Nichols is a native of Las Vegas, Nevada. She is a mother of two adult children and proud grandmother of three adorable grandchildren.
