So I asked Vice-Chair, Kat Carrick, how the everyday Pittsburgh queer can help with the relocation of the GLCC. Rest assured the organization has been working for many months on this very issue — we all know they've planned to move even if we weren't aware of the impendingness of the whole situation.
There's something very concrete you can do in the immediate future to make an impact — help convince your City and County Council reps that the GLCC is important.
how the community could help….one thought is to attend the august 7th squirrel hill urban coalition meeting at 7 pm in the JCC and let the developer and city council know that the programs and services that the glcc provides are necessary for the health of our community.
We are providing more programs than ever – including a new medical screening program that I'm wicked excited about –will provide free gyne exams, std tests, and basic health care screenings at the glcc….that program is due to start in september.
Those are Kat's very words. August 7th it is folks. Show up and be heard. If you want to stick with posting Anonymous neighborhood bashings, you aren't really part of the solution. If you want to make sure all of our Council reps understand the importance of this organization and that the entire community — gay and straight — benefits from its healthy existance, then go for it.
Let's hope organizations like Steel City Stonewall, Gertrude Stein, Delta Foundation and so forth step up to speak up for the GLCC.
