This organization has changed my life in so many ways. It has meant a social outlet, as well as allowing me to become an activist for LGBT Seniors. I served on the board for 6 years, and now I continue as the program director of SAGE Raleigh (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders). I have met the most amazing people both as board members, staff, volunteers and patrons. Life changing is an understatement. I'm not sure where my life would be without the LGBT Center of Raleigh!

I joined the development committee that founded the LGBT Center of Raleigh in 2005, and have been heavily involved with this undertaking ever since. Having served on the board of directors for the last 4 years I have been overwhelmed at the growth this organization has achieved in such a short time. My work here has given me a new appreciation and respect for the diverse LGBT community, and it has given a meaning to my life that I never knew was possible. Also, as chairman of the Gay & Gray Initiative I have found another very important cause for a segment of the population that has traditionally been underrepresented and in dire need of services. As someone who has never before taken the role of "activist" this Center has pushed me in a new direction and made an important and meaningful change in my life.

Ex-Board member here. The LGBT Center of Raleigh was so needed and here it stands! Offering programs and cheering on the LGBT population of NC. It has a devoted string of volunteers and members who do everything they can to make everyone feel welcome and supported. I am so proud to have been on the board and to help the center whenever I can.
