Alan Cumming, Hal Sparks and Chely Wright are among the celebrities expected to attend the March 9 opening of an LGBT center in Kansas City, Missouri.

Wright's LIKEME non-profit announced plans for its first LIKEME Lighthouse last year.

The center includes an LGBT library, a meeting space and conference rooms. Services such as suicide prevention and STD testing will be offered.

The 41-year-old Wright came out gay in her 2010 memoir Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer, becoming the first country music star to come out.

“I've learned since coming out that community is everything,” said Wright in a statement. “The LIKEME Lighthouse's purpose is to further education, safety, comfort and progress for LGBT folks, for their families and for their friends. When the community is truly served and connected, we will know that the Lighthouse is providing the people in my hometown what they deserve. It is my heartfelt belief that this LGBT center will change and save lives in Kansas City and the surrounding areas.”

Also expected at the opening are The Real L Word's Stamie Karakasidis and Tracy Ryerson, and MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts.
