Roanoke Equality has been working non-stop in partnership with the Conflict Resolution Center to put together an amazing one of a kind workshop designed to help our community overcome our differences in order to work together more effectively.
From the earliest days of the GLBT rights movement our focus has been on getting straight society to accept us, but nothing has been done to help us get along with each other within our own diverse community. Join us on Saturday, May 8 from 11am to 2pm at the Claude Moore Education Complex, 109 North Henry St., in Roanoke for a rousing discussion of the issues that divide us with a focus on overcoming them.
We've put together a great team of top-notch presenters from the Conflict Resolution Center, along with Frank House of Roanoke Equality and of course, yours truly.
Did I mention all the free stuff? We'll be serving a free lunch and will have a free drawing for door prizes, which include CD's by LGBT artists, T-shirts and a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the Library Restaurant, graciously donated by my good friend, restaurateur Lowell Hill.
Are you a lesbian mom, a gay dad, a trans teen or a bi-curious, bi-racial, big-boned beauty who just wants to connect to the community outside the bar scene? Are you a little "too old", "too big", "too small", or "just too damn fabulous"? Then we want to hear from you!
