Community Empowerment Workshop to Promote Diversity

Tuesday, October 4th  |  5:30 – 8:30 pm  |  Library of Virginia  |  Free

Join SAGE Central Virginia, AARP Virginia, SONG (Southerners on New Ground), and the Asian Chamber of Commerce and several other community groups for a Community Empowerment Workshop being held Tuesday, October 4 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at the Library of Virginia.

Virginia is more racially and culturally diverse than it has ever been. To ensure all communities are fairly represented, all individuals should be involved, including individuals from the LGBT, Hispanic, Asian and African American communities. This workshop will focus on what you need to know to fully participate in the political process, learn the ins and outs of redistricting and improve lives in your community. It will also be a chance to bring diverse communities together to help find common ground with the goal of improving the community. Read More…

September’s Second Fridays Happy Hour

Summer is winding down, but we’ll be extending the season by a few days at September’s Second Fridays happy hour at the 2300 Club. The patio will be open and the 2300 Club will be mixing some icy summer cocktail specials.

Richmond Triangle Players will be on hand giving away tickets to the opening night performance of “Suddenly Last Summer” and a special discount code for people who attend Second Fridays.”Suddenly Last Summer” is presented as part of the Tennessee Williams Centennial Celebration, presented by Richmond Triangle Players and Firehouse Theatre Project.

Second Fridays is open to everyone, and a portion of the proceeds benefits GCCR. Pick out a pair of shorts and your snazziest sunglasses and join us to celebrate summer!

Richmond’s Billboard Project Recreated

The new billboard

Nearly twenty-five years ago activists published a provocative message on billboards around Richmond: Someone You Know is Gay… Maybe Someone You Love. Beginning August 26, the Gay Community Center of Richmond will recreate this campaign by republishing this important message on a billboard overlooking Interstate 95 in central Richmond.

Each day tens of thousands of travelers traveling south on Interstate 95 and east on Interstate 64 will see this message of inclusion as they pass the Gay Community Center of Richmond. Perhaps some will learn. Perhaps some will come out. Just as in 1987, Richmond will be reminded that LGBT people are woven into the fabric of the city. Read More…
