I have been involved with OkEq for 15+ years. The most amazing thing about this organization is that it is managed by volunteers - and has been organized that way since the 80's! The leadership at OkEq is committed to providing an environment that is welcoming to all people who are LGBTQ and their allies. The programming efforts are strategically designed to meet the current needs of its members and users and a consistent effort is applied to assess the program effectiveness.
