GLSO Pride Center
June 23, 2009

The Pride Center is an essential hub of the LGBT community in Lexington. It is the primary source of info about organizations and events. It has and continues to provide resources for a wide range of people and groups including youth, transgender people, and others who may otherwise feel desperately isolated. It provides a physical space for many groups to meet in safety and confidentiality. Some of the folks who have sustained the center over many years are heroes in my mind.

the social opportunities.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Ways to make it better...

it hadn't rained on SisterSound. You all can control that, can't you. ;>

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

money, location.

One thing I'd also say is that...

If the board is in need of assistance with strategic planning for the future done in an open way based on group consensus, I can help. I would love volunteer to facilitate a process for this if it is needed.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
