Yes, I use to be a Board Member at the Memphis Gay Lesbian Community Center & work on the Newspape staff for our LGBTQ newspaper before it stopped being published. The MGLCC has a special place within my heart because it has allowed me to do a great majority of my Social Work Intern hours plus learn a great deal about many of the issues and concerns of teens who expeirence homelessness after telling their parents they are either gay, lesbian or trangendered to the point they're literally kicked out of the house right at that moment into the mean streets of Memphis.

The Memphis Gay Lesbian Community Center has become many of the teenagers and young adults refuge last hope before getting into serious trouble like attempting suicide or getting into drugs or prostitution after getting kicked out of their own homes. A few families has stepped up to allowed these teenagers and young adults to move into their homes but not until the Executive Director hss completed a background check on the adults.

I just think doing my hours at this Center has openef my eyes and made me feel good about many things am learning when I was a board member and volunteer. MGLCC is an excellent non-profit within 250 miles in any directon for many LGBTQ individuals in the South with many resources. Thanks for being a beacon for those individuals in the community.

MGLCC serves a vital role in the community as a central point of connection and communication. It provides life-saving and life-enhancing services and programs. For newcomers to the area or those just coming out, MGLCC can provide referrals to gay-friendly businesses and professionals and help navigate life in the mid-south. I can't imagine Memphis without MGLCC.
