A brand new day at the Center
It is with the utmost excitement and honor that I begin my first day as the Executive Director of The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. I am simply thrilled to be here, and I am also ready to immediately get to work in leading this landmark institution. The possibilities here at the Center are endless. I have the deepest respect for the Center’s history and am fiercely dedicated to continuing to provide a home for our LGBT community.
Of all the organizations that make a difference, I wanted to work at the Center for a very specific reason. At this point in my life, I first and foremost want to help people, and I have been beyond inspired by the many ways the Center does just that. Leading the Center will allow me the opportunity to guide an organization that changes thousands of lives each week. Whether it is providing support to LGBT families, a safe space for LGBT youth, substance abuse support and HIV/AIDS counseling, or life-affirming cultural programs, the Center helps people in a way that is unparalleled.
I hold the LGBT movement close to my heart. It is who I am, and it represents the people I want to fight for. Every single one of us has the opportunity to be a leader and make changes that have a bold impact on the future of the LGBT movement. As the Center’s Executive Director, I will make that my mission. I will also make it my mission to reach out, engage and empower all of you to be agents of change with me. Through the growing work of the Center, we can do this together.
Whether you’ve visited the Center once or you come regularly, I invite you to take another look at all we have to offer. I ask you to become involved in the life-changing work and programs that take place here every week. I look forward to getting to know all of you, as you are all part of the community I am so proud to represent as the Center’s new Executive Director.
I hope to see you all at the Center soon.
