AARP Pride Information and Resources for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender People, Families and Allies - AARP
Tuesday, May 4, 2010
Since the days before Stonewall, the LGBT rights movement has focused on convincing straight society to accept us and grant us our rights, but virtually nothing has been done to help us understand and embrace each other within our own community. This one of a kind workshop is designed to help us break down the walls that divide the LGBT community and help us work together to achieve our common goals.
Join us on Saturday, May 8th from 11am - 2pm at the Claude Moore Educational Building, 109 N. Henry St. in Roanoke.
Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia do exist with our diverse community. Join us and share you stories and experiences as we explore ways to address these issues and embrace our differences.
Hosted by local activist and Roanoke Equality Co-Founder Frank House (www.GLBTRoanoke.com) and yours truly, this exciting discussion group will be facilitated by the amazing and talented staff of Roanoke's Conflict Resolution Center. I promise you we'll all have a great time.
Did I forget to mention all the free stuff? Not only is there free parking and free lunch, we've got some pretty cool door prizes, including $50 coupons for dinner at The Library Restaurant, graciously donated by my good friend, restauranteur Lowell Hill. We've also got some cool swag from The Shadowbox Community Micro-Cinema, Roanoke's newest showcase for truly independent films.
This event is sponsored in part by The Roanoke Pride Committee and The Metropolitan Community Church of the Blue Ridge.
Come out and join us for a fun and engaging event that is the talk of Roanoke's LGBT community. Share your stories, bring your friends, learn something about your community and have a great time!
