2018 was a year full of hard lessons and promising opportunities.
Hate and bigotry continue to rise on the national stage, and we face an increased need for a safe place for LGBTQ2SIA+ Oregonians. The steps we make towards positive change will require courage, compassion, and persistence.
After 15 years of serving this community, we are ready for this challenge.
At Q Center, our strength comes from our community. Our programs in the next year will be increasingly relevant and innovative, thanks to the dedicated efforts of Q staff and a powerful number of volunteers.
Every day will be an opportunity for us to listen, learn, and act for the betterment of LGBTQ+ people. We will continue this mission until every single LGBTQ2SIA+ individual has safety, community, and opportunity.
I believe in Q, and I believe in us. I’m beyond excited for 2019 and the possibilities ahead for Q Center.
Let’s make it happen!
