We hope that you will visit one of our meetings, whether you are a parent, family member, or friend of a GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender) person, or a GLBT person yourself. We believe that you will find a group of caring people who want to understand where you are, and perhaps where you are trying to go in your life.
Our group is made up of parents, family, and friends, as well as GLBT folks themselves. It is a wonderful, supportive mixture of people who learn from each other about their lives.
Come and join us!

This amends Executive Order 11246 by adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of protected categories covering federal contractors.
As he noted, “Because of the passionate advocacy and the irrefutable rightness of [their] cause, our government -- government of the people, by the people, and for the people -- will become just a little bit fairer."
