LGBT Drop in – press release

LGBT Drop in – press release.

On Thursday, 30 January 2014 (6pm – 8 pm) the Northern BC LGBT Alliance will be hosting their first drop in for people who want or need a place to get information on gender and sexuality or meet people. The drop in will be at 1177 3rd Ave on the main floor from 6-8 pm every Thursday.

“It has been many years since a drop in that is open to all ages has been operating in PG for the LGBT community and I am glad to be part of the re-opening of the drop in.“ commented Shawn Peters, Chair of Northern BC LGBT Alliance.
The first drop in will be an open house theme with an open invitation for everyone to attend. The alliance has worked with different business, societies and individuals to get the drop ins open after many community members have told us they wanted and needed a place they could go be safe and get information.

“LAMBDA PG has gracefully donated the space to help start the drop ins in Prince George. I believe that the community needs a place free for all ages to go and get information and meet people. I hear so many stories about people needing a safe space and now that I can help provide a safe space for the LGBT Community to meet and get information I am happy to do so.” said Linda, Owner and Operator of LAMBDA PG.

The first drop is going to have free food and door prizes. Everyone is invited to come down see the drop in centre and meet the people making changes in this city. At the open house the Northern BC LGBT Alliance will also be unveiling the plans for a Diversity Prom, where students who don’t feel comfortable attending their own prom can go. The open house will also be featuring all the activities that the Alliance would like to see happen during Pride 2014 events in Prince George. If your group or business wants to get involved or provide support through pamphlets or a donation please come down and drop it off at the open house. Societies will be allowed to have pamphlets out for people to pick up at the drop ins.
Drops ins will then be every Thursday from 6-8 pm.
