QCH LGBTQ+ Programs Impact Queens

On March 18, QCH's Queens Center for Gay Seniors hosted a Roundtable Discussion on the NYC Council LGBTQ+ Caucus's "Marsha & Sylvia Plan," a proposal for citywide policy and procedural changes that would help create a a more just, equitable city for LGBTQIA+ and TGNCNBI New Yorkers. Caucus members Tiffany Cabán, Erik Bottcher, Lynn Schulman, Shekar Krishnan, and Linda Lee were present, and participants broke up into groups to review and give feedback on nine issue areas: Arts & Culture; Education, Government Operations; Health; Housing & Homelessness; Older Adults; Public Safety; Sex Work; and Youth & Foster Care.  

On March 23, our Generation Q LGBTQ+ youth center helped to organize a "Queens Wide Trans Day of Visibility" at Queens Borough Hall (photo above). During the event, members of the trans, non-binary, and gender expansive community of all ages were able to build new connections and learn about local resources available for them and their peers.
