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;
Those who love each other shall become invincible.

His words ring true for our times and our freedoms, as well. There have been many positive changes for our LGBTQ community, but there is so much yet to be done. We make a special request of you: your annual gift will help the Center to have a breakthrough year in 2015. Read more…

October 1 – October 31

LGBTQ History month celebrates the accomplishments of 31 LGBTQ people from history and contemporary times. LGBTQ history month provides role models, shows LGBTQ contributions, and fosters a sense of belonging and community pride by connecting individuals to our larger heritage.

October 15th our celebration continues with Stormé DeLarverie! During the Stonewall Uprising, the story goes that Stormé threw the first punch after she was called a slur and mis-gendered, knocking the officer to the ground and thus kicking off the contemporary LGBTQ rights movement.

If you are interested in learning more about Stormé DeLarverie or the Stonewall Uprising, watch the movies Stormé: The Lady of the Jewel Box or the PBS documentary Stonewall Uprising. Read more…

The specific series, titled Good Night Irene, is a “reference to the folk song from her childhood and the wish that the devastation not return and that the drinking water and mountains remain protected”. Read more…
