Annual Appeal 2014
A special message from Jan Whitman, Center Board President

Dear Friend of the Center,

I love these words from Walt Whitman:
Be not dishearten’d – Affection shall solve the problems of Freedom yet;

October is LGBTQ History Month!
Celebrate LGBTQ Community Icons
October 1 – October 31

Our final icon of LGBTQ History Month is Sylvester, the “Queen of Disco.” Sylvester was popular in the San Francisco music scene, performing in numerous music groups with transgender women and drag queens in the 1960’s – 1980’s. His solo career crowned with his singles, “You Make Me Feel” and “Dance.” Read more…
