Red State Freedom Tour

(GayWebSource.com - Gay News & Press Network) - Posted by SeasonsofPride.com
Red State Freedom TourSan Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus responds to the election results by announcing a tour to support the LGBTQ community in RED states.

Like many of you, the 300+ members of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus family – singers, staff and volunteers – have, along with the entire LGBTQ community, spent the last few days navigating our collective way through feelings of shock and despair. Rather than succumbing to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, we’ve asked, “what can we do to make a difference?”

In response to the recent presidential election and the voices of the so-called “silent majority,” SFGMC will pursue a “Red State Freedom Tour” in the summer of 2018.

While the exact itinerary has not been determined, it is our plan to go on a whistle-stop tour through those states where the LGBTQ community is struggling, and likely feeling even further marginalized after the election results. We hope our presence and our music will encourage our brothers and sisters, educate others and challenge those communities to think differently.

The tour will cap off our monumental 40th Season and commemorate how SFGMC launched the global LGBTQ choral movement in 1978. We can think of no better way to use our time, talent, resources and energy than to take our message through music to those who need it most. We, as a country, have a long road to travel, and we believe this tour is a step in the right direction that will build bridges of understanding, compassion, and empathy.

SFGMC – THERE WILL BE LIGHT (VIDEO)
To launch this 2018 Outreach tour, we’re sharing with you a live video, featuring “Light” from Next to Normal.
You’ve heard us perform this song many times over the last few years, and we hope it will bring you some solace in this turbulent week. “Light” is a song that has brought us comfort in dark times. It is our hope it will do that again, for you.

Supporting LGBTQI Youth

(GayWebSource.com - Gay News & Press Network) - Posted by SeasonsofPride.com
Supporting LGBTQI YouthLast year, the number of LGBTQI youth celebrating Thanksgiving at Sylvia’s Place doubled to nearly 60. Youth who have stayed at Sylvia’s Place in the past are welcomed back with open arms and current residents get to share in the love of a Sylvia’s Place holiday celebration for the very first time.
Our Thanksgiving probably sounds a lot like yours. The cooking starts on Monday and doesn’t end until the last pie comes out of the oven on Thanksgiving afternoon. When youth arrive, they write down what they’re thankful for and post it on our blessings board. Youth and staff eat, laugh, and catch up with one another. And, in the last two years–thanks to the generous donation of a Nintendo Wii–everyone plays Just Dance after the meal in order to work off a little bit of the food!!
These Thanksgiving traditions are a way to provide stability and love to LGBTQI youth who don’t have supportive families to go home to. It’s a blessing for us to be able to extend that same love 365 days a year, as we have for the past 14 years. This Thanksgiving, consider making a gift to support our holiday celebration and the daily work of MCCNY Charities to make sure that none of our youth feels alone or unwanted. When you do, we’ll add your first name to our blessings board on Thanksgiving Day, so that we can hold you in our hearts as we give thanks. Thank you for your generosity and happy holidays from everyone at MCCNY Charities!

Homeless Youth Services

MCCNY Homeless Youth Services: Sylvia’s Place is the starting point for New York City’s LGBTQI youth in crisis. Integrating case management with mental health services while stressing the unique strengths and potential of each youth, MCCNY Homeless Youth Services has developed a proven method for serving LGBTQI youth in crisis. This method has been modeled by service providers across the country and around the world.

Services provides: • Emergency overnight services
• Connections to long-term housing
• Case management

• Hot meals

Youth who come to MCCNY Homeless Youth Services often arrive in the city with dreams of Chelsea, but find the immediate help they need in Hell’s Kitchen. Many of these youth have histories of abuse, and most have experienced discrimination or violence at mainstream shelters. MCCNY Homeless Youth Services is one of the only shelters in the city that accepts youth directly off the street, without a referral. MCCNY Homeless Youth Services prioritizes the most underserved LGBTQI youth, including transgender and intersex youth, youth experiencing trauma, and those living with HIV/AIDS.

This year we are changing the event up with a dynamic TPOC lead panel about ending the violence against trans people. Instead of reading of the names, we will be sharing a moving film tribute. The event will be live streaming and if you want to be in community please join us Trans: Thrive at 3pm. (Details below!)
Finally, if your missed CeCe McDonald and Joshua Allen at the Black Excellence Tour check out the full video

The mission of the SF LGBT Center is to connect our diverse community to opportunities, resources and each other to achieve our vision of a stronger, healthier, and more equitable world for LGBT people and our allies. When visitors arrive at the Center, they find free services like career counseling, job fairs, computer lab, social activities, mentorships, youth meals, daycare, various workshops and much more. Here they can connect with other LGBT people and organize to secure our equal rights. The Center is truly the heart, home and hands of the San Francisco LGBT community.

Tell us your stories #PrideStories

(GayWebSource.com - Gay News & Press Network) - Posted by SeasonsofPride.com

When we started this project in 2007, we felt the need to highlight resources for the LGBTQ community.  We wanted to showcase businesses that supported the community, tell stories of folks who were making an impact and feature organizations that were on the ground every day providing much need resources and support were visible and accessible.  Our goal was to empower our community through jobs, resources, and support.

Probably more than anything, our readers enjoy our event postings.  We celebrate Pride in all forms from film festivals to kink events to business networking and we try to offer a wide geographical spectrum.  Sure big stuff is there like Frameline, IML and NGLCC – but we also strive to include smaller, lesser know events to offer visibility and reach into communities with fewer opportunities to connect to their queer counterparts.

OK, here is comes – you knew there would be an ask, there’s always an ask.  What exactly do we want in return? You!

Send us your events, tell us about great businesses, share safe spaces and folks who are making an impact every day in LGBTQ lives. Tell us your stories #PrideStories. Become a volunteer editor.  Tell your friends about us.  Sign up for the newsletter.  Connect with us on social media.

Now, more than ever – we need to love and support one another.

Cerebral Palsy and LGBT

Cerebral Palsy and LGBT

My team and I are raising awareness for bullying as well as LGBT History. You can find out more at cerebralpalsyguidance.com/cerebral-palsy/living/lgbt/.

As you may know, children with disabilities are sometimes more likely to be bullied than their non-disabled peers. This includes children that are also part of the LGBT community. Obviously, this is not a good thing.

Having cerebral palsy, I understand how critical it is for parents of a child with CP to have access to reliable information, especially when it comes to delicate topics like these. Equally as important, I represent CerebralPalsyGuidance.com because I believe in their mission of providing quality cerebral palsy information and assistance to families in need.

I certainly admire your website. With the passing of National Bullying Prevention and upcoming LGBT Pride Month, it would be an honor to see our this information highlighted and linked to from your website at seasonsofpride.com/lgbt-gay-resources-links/http://seasonsofpride.com/gay-parenting-groups-and-resources/. If there’s room for a link to cerebralpalsyguidance.com, please let me know.

Anything you can do to help spread awareness and further education would go a long way.

Thanks again for your time in advance, and I look forward to hearing back.

Kindly, Alex
