Please welcome Loren Klein to the Pride Center team! Loren is the Coordinator of Transgender and Non-Binary Programs & Services. He will be working with us to meet the needs of our growing communities. According to a June 2016 report by The Williams Institute, approximately 0.6 percent of U.S. adults identify as Transgender. That may seem like a tiny percentage, but that translates to 1.4 million Americans who deserve to feel safe and respected within their communities and to have the ability to exercise their full civil rights. The Pride Center will be expanding our Trans & NB programming to include special events and additional support/social groups. To reach Loren directly, you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Did you know the Pride Center currently offers a monthly Transgender and Non-Binary support group? We do! Talking About Gender (TaG) support group meets the second Wednesday of the month, 7:30-9pm at the Nyack Center. For more information about the TaG group, please emailDiana Wilkins.)
Last month, the Rockland County Legislature unanimously voted to call on the New York State Senate to finally pass GENDA. GENDA, as you may know, is a piece of NY State legislation that would protect Transgender New Yorkers from discrimination.
Summertime! School is out, kids are at camp, vaca/staycations are in full effect, AC’s are blasting and Pride Month 2017 is in the books! It was so busy, in fact, it spilled into July and the month escaped us.
