Septembers Flying, Wednesday Support/Movie Night, National Coming Out Week Events

September is going by fast and the Pride Center is excited to be back in the groove after our Summer off. We had a great business meeting where we set the schedule for the rest of the year, and discussed upcoming plans and activities. In 4 short weeks we will be sponsoring National Coming Out Week events, with a coalition of our other LGBT organizations here in the Mahoning Valley. There will be 8 days of events from October 10 through October 17. The last event on the 17th will be a fundraiser for the Pride Center and we need everyone to spread the word. We will be holding a wine and cheese party costs $10 dollars for the tastings and there will be a silent auction and a LGBT Expo featuring many of the Valley's LGBT organizations. The full calendar of events will be posted soon.

This Wednesday, September 16th we will be back at the Pride Center for our twice monthly support meeting. Because of low attendance in the past, (guess we are all getting some great support in our LGBT lives,) we will be combining the support meetings with a movie night as well. Each meeting we will have a choice of LGBT themed movies to choose from; newly released to old favorites. The Pride Center will be open from 7:30 p.m. and the movie will start at 7:40. Bring movie snacks if you wish. Popcorn will be provided and there will be soda for sale for 50 cents. If anyone has anything to talk about, or are in need of some advice and support, we will get together over in the Stonewall side of the building while the movie is playing, and join the movie in progress after we all get to talk it out. Let's really make the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, a time to support, fellowship, and relax with others in the LGBT community and our allies. Allies are always welcome too.

Coming soon is the newly updated Pride Center website. There will be a monthly calendar of events, and we will be asking members to send in their pictures and videos of events. Website launch will be in the next couple of days, we will send an announcement out. Until then, tell your friends about The Mahoning Valley Pride Center, we don't want to be a secret. Have a great week and enjoy life!
