Review for GLSO Pride Center, Lexington, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came out at a ripe old age. Scared to death, I circled the block of the Pride Center for a year before I got the nerve to go in the door. When I got there, I found people laughing, happy and secure, all the things I was not. I needed to know that I was OK and that there was a place where I could be me and not be afraid. After coming back time after time, both in curiosity and a need to connect and learn about my new community, I found a peace that I had never had. A sense of belonging. The more I volunteered and went to various meetings and functions, the better I felt about myself. I found a place I fit. The pieces that were so shattered began to mend. I also found the love of my life. For that, I will be forever greatful to the GLSO and the Pride Center. I hope to work there until I cannot. I hope that I can give back at least part of what was given to me. Sincerely, Ginger

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The whole experience has been glorious. It is hard, sometimes exasperating, sometimes exhilarating, always interesting, always worthwhile.

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

Wonderful, warm, welcoming and dedicated. Such a hard-working bunch!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Spread the word (tv, radio, e-ads, print,) expand (new Pride Center, new programs,) reach out (rural areas, support and aid to the disenfranchised,) educate (GLSEN, PFLAG, classrooms,) give HOPE (Welcome, Accept, Empower!)

Ways to make it better...

Nothing. I believe life unfolds the way it should.

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

Education, education, planning, planning, execution, execution, follow-up.

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

The Board is dedicated and no matter what their shortcomings have always and will always continue to work toward a better future for GLBT individuals and the GLBT community.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
