Today, Legacy is a full-service medical home for the thousands of men, women, and children who come to our 12 clinics in Houston, Baytown and Beaumont. We've changed to meet the growing health care needs in Southeast Texas, but we haven't changed our commitment to the LGBT community.
To celebrate more than three decades of service, we're launching the Preserving our Legacy newsletter. Each month, we'll bring you stories about the people, programs, and innovative health care treatments driving Legacy's HIV/AIDS services and supporting our LGBT clients. We'll tell you about the latest research and medical treatments, like PrEP, that offer new ways to reduce new HIV diagnoses. You'll learn more about our legislative, and local advocacy, like our recent involvement in Houston's HERO ordinance. We'll highlight events and fundraisers benefitting the LGBT community, and show you how you can get involved. We also hope to create opportunities for learning and thoughtful discussions between the generations of the LGBT community.
If you look closely at the newsletter's masthead, you'll see the silhouette of an oak tree that stands outside Legacy's Montrose clinic. It's a living symbol of our roots in the LGBT community and the strength of our commitment to the fight against discrimination and HIV. We'd like to thank long-time supporters Bryan Hlavinka, Jim Kovach, Bob Lawson, and Ben Montalbano for sparking the idea of a newsletter to keep you up-to-date about Legacy's HIV and LGBT programs, events, and outreach. They also suggested a way for interested donors to make direct contributions to our LGBT efforts, and you can do that by clicking the DONATE button at the bottom of this page.
