Gender and Sexuality Alliance Club offers students a spectrum of opportunities

Gender and Sexuality Alliance Club offers students a spectrum of opportunities | the world of donnie harold harris | Scoop.it
The Gender and Sexuality (GSA) Club aims to provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ teens and their allies.


The GSA Club is a place where students can go to learn more about issues in the LGBTQ+ community, as well as meet new people.


“We want to educate people about queer history, which doesn’t often get taught in school,” said Club President Oliver Golden, a senior. “We want to provide a safe space and a supportive group for the queer community.”


The club leaders offer different presentations and activities that help support and educate members of the community. Some of them include queer sex education and a transgender clothes drive.
“We want to educate and at the same time invite people to participate in these discussions,” Golden said. “A lot of the time you’re either watching or actively participating [in activities], and we want to combine the two.”


The GSA Club makes opportunities for students to find different forms of help and support from peers and mentors.
“This is a place where students can find people who are like them,” said Cynthia Shusterman, a co-advisor of the club. “It’s a place where people can reveal their true identity and be themselves.”


The club itself consists of both members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies of the community. Students who are a part of the club enjoy it for many reasons.


“I like this club because it helped me meet new people and friends,” said freshman Sierra Wampler.


Despite limited promotion, the GSA Club receives a number of people annually. Their Instagram  and Twitter pages keep members updated on meetings and current events.


“Every year we get about 40 to 50 people coming to the club,” Golden said. “We go to the Clubs Fair and we have social media, but other than that we don’t advertise that much.”


While the GSA Club does not work with the Belmont Library, they do work with the San Mateo County Pride Center (SMCPC). Since their recent opening, the SMCPC hosted events such as Queer Prom and other activities involving teens.


“We don’t work with the library, but they have a Spectrum Action Group, which helps LGBTQ+ youth and works on community outreach projects,” Golden said. “We work with the San Mateo Pride Center sometimes.”


The GSA Club makes an effort to allow students to be open about their stories and experiences in life.


“This club is helpful to students because it’s a place where they can share their own stories,” said Andrew Ramroth, a co-advisor of the club. “This gives them opportunities to share something that they might not be able to share outside of the club.”
The GSA Club strives to support all their members.
“Our goal is to make a safe space for all queer teens and their allies at Carlmont,” said Golden.

CenterLink: Bringing Out Pride Center Potential

CenterLink: Bringing Out Pride Center Potential | the world of donnie harold harris | Scoop.it
The Wilton Manors area plays host to many well known LGBT related nonprofits like the Pride Center, SunServe and Latinos Salud. But then there’s CenterLink, an unknown but extremely important national LGBT non-profit that provides for emerging LGBT centers across the country.

Their mission: “to support the development of strong, sustainable LGBT community centers.”

It was in 1971 when the first LGBT centers opened their doors in Los Angeles, California and Albany, New York. Today there are Pride Centers across the U.S. and throughout the world providing services like counseling, social events, STI screening and even housing to the LGBT community.

In order to offer those services and expand their capacity for helping community members, pride centers need proper resources and funding. CenterLink, a nonprofit organization headquartered close to Wilton Manors works everyday to ensure that those centers here in Florida and across the country get the resources necessary to continue their work.

“Every center focuses on the need from their community,” CenterLink CEO Lora Tucker said. “Most are small and they are trying to grow, and we help them to find grants to grow capacity.”

Founded in 1994, CenterLink is a member-based coalition that works to ensure that LGBT community centers have the resources necessary to address the needs of their respective communities. Currently the organization serves over 200 LGBT centers in 45 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, as well as centers in Canada, Australia and China.

“When I started at Compass in 1997 CenterLink was an all volunteer organization,” said Tony Plakas, the CEO of Compass. “They were a group of people who just wanted to help emerging centers, to help new centers get their footing and create a support structure so they didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. Once upon a time CenterLink was a really important component of the work we do at Compass today.”

According to CenterLink, over 60 percent of LGBT centers provide some direct health services including counseling, peer-led programs and support groups, as well as physical health and other mental health services.

“A fundamental goal of our mission is to help build the capacity of centers to meet the social, cultural, health and political advocacy needs of LGBT community members across the country,” CenterLink’s website reads. “CenterLink also acts as a voice for the LGBT community centers in national grassroots organizing, coalition building and social activism in order to strengthen and build a unified center movement.”

The same percentage of centers also operate with 5 or fewer paid staff, and over 30 percent of LGBT centers nationwide make do without any paid staff members.

Despite the humble resources many centers operate with, CenterLink believes that LGBT centers offer some of the most important services to the LGBT community, and ensuring they are able to operate to their fullest potential is crucial when it comes to helping LGBT individuals and the pursuit of equal rights.

“Whether they provide direct services, educate the public or organize for social change, community centers work more closely with their LGBT constituency and engage more community leaders and decision-makers than any other LGBT network in the country,” CenterLink’s site reads.

In order to ensure that LGBT centers working within CenterLink’s network can maximize their capacity, CenterLink has been hard at work with national organizations to hold down Obama-era policy changes during an unsympathetic administration.

According to Tucker, they are also working on state and local levels to protect and pursue inclusive policies.

“When I look at CenterLink and they way things are going with the new administration, things are crazy,” Tucker said. “On a state level we are working on equality work, to ensure that we elect good people and that people are paying attention to policies affecting the LGBT community.”

On a local level, CenterLink has established the Center Action Network (CAN), which is an attempt to highlight projects and efforts by local organizations and LGBT centers, helping them to secure the funding, expertise and opportunities necessary to maximize their impact.

“We created the Center Action Network, or CAN, to maximize the capacity of LGBT centers to mobilize. We are working on a grassroots level to empower our allies and support advocacy efforts. We are also helping to secure government funding channels, which are the lifeblood of these LGBT centers.”

Tucker is a firm believer that the fight for equal rights is far from over, and working with LGBT centers and programs that seek to promote and secure inclusive policy as well as ensuring more LGBT representation in policy is a must.

“After gay marriage I think we were asleep at the helm for a while there,” Tucker said. “And now we’ve come to realize that we need to be diligent about these things and continue with these small wins, and secure more representation for our communities in government.”

CenterLink is currently working with local centers and organizations on a number of issues, one of which is the staggering number of LGBT youth who are without a home.

“Our youth need support as they continue to get thrown out of their homes and get bullied,” Tucker said. “Many of these youth just need a place to sleep. Some centers, like the pride center in L.A., have a youth shelter, but there’s not enough room. And other LGBT centers are working to build shelters, but they need resources.”

CenterLink is also working to help programs that benefit the aging LGBT community — pointing out the work done by the Pride Center in Wilton Manors and other programs that are working on affordable LGBT senior housing — as well as working with programs for the trans community.

CenterLink is always looking for volunteers at their Wilton Manors location for those interested in getting involved with LGBT outreach and community work.

“Our role is to highlight centers, and to ensure that they are thriving and that new centers that are created have proper need assessments,” Tucker said. “Very few people know that we are headquartered in Wilton Manors. We are holistically a very important part of the LGBT movement.”

The CenterLink office is located at 1001 W Cypress Creek Rd in Fort Lauderdale. Visit www.lgbtcenters.org for more information.

Delores Jacobs Bids Farewell To San Diego LGBT Community Center | KPBS

Delores Jacobs Bids Farewell To San Diego LGBT Community Center | KPBS | the world of donnie harold harris | Scoop.it

As the San Diego City Council earlier this month proclaimed June 22, 2018 "Dr. Delores Jacobs Day," Councilwoman Georgette Gomez gave the longtime local LGBT activist a personal thank you.

"Dr. Delores Jacobs has been a great leader in the LGBTQ community, and I have the great pleasure to call her my mentor," Gomez said. "She inspired me and encouraged my community involvement. And I can actually honestly say this, that I wouldn't be here as a council member without her support and her encouragement. So thank you."

Jacobs, who has served as the CEO of the San Diego LGBT Community Center since 2001, will be formally stepping down from her position at the end of this month. In her 17-year tenure, Jacobs founded a youth leadership academy, expanded transgender-focused counseling and support groups and started programming at a North Park affordable housing project for LGBT seniors.

While Jacobs had a hand in all those things, she declines to take all the credit.

"The idea that any one person runs any organization is a little misleading," Jacobs said in an interview. "Without the talent, the creativity and commitment of this staff, and the board and the volunteers, The Center wouldn't move forward. And we're lucky enough to have all three."


Her time at The Center was not without challenges and setbacks: In 2008 Jacobs led an aggressive but unsuccessful campaign against Proposition 8, which revoked the right of same-sex couples to get married. Shortly thereafter came the Great Recession.

"It was a double whammy," Jacobs recalled. "We lost an election one day, and the next day learned the economy was bottoming out."

The economic downturn translated to declining revenues for The Center. Between 2008 and 2011, The Center's budget shrunk by a quarter, forcing staff layoffs.

But the budget and staffing have more than recovered — The Center successfully completed a $2 million fundraising campaign late last year, and this spring it paid off the mortgage on its main building in Hillcrest.


Delores Jacobs poses with staff and volunteers for the LGBT Community Center at a San Diego Pride parade.

The political setbacks did not last either: Proposition 8 was ultimately overturned by the courts, and in 2015 the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the country. Jacobs attributes those victories to more LGBT people becoming politically active.

"Took a while to get organized and change more minds and hearts, and change the courts' minds about basic fairness and basic freedoms, but we did," Jacobs said.

Despite the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality, Jacobs said many in the LGBT community have not seen the same level of progress. She said The Center is seeing an increase in the demand for its services: Last year it served more than 25,000 people through more than 73,000 services visits.

"There are challenges for the trans community, who continues to be oppressed, there are challenges for people of color who are also LGBT, there are challenges in the prison system, there are challenges in health care with disparities that continue," she said. "So the fight's not over."

Last March The Center's board announced it had selected Jacobs' replacement: Cara Dessert, the current chief development and community engagement officer. Dessert started as a community organizer at The Center in 2007 before going to law school and later working in the office of then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris.

"My heart was always calling me back home to The Center," Dessert said.

Dessert will be The Center's first Latina CEO, and said she would continue The Center's focus on social justice issues that intersect with LGBT rights.

"We're on the border, and so that means that when we talk about our LGBT community, that community includes immigrants and refugees, and it includes LGBT people in mixed-status families," Dessert said. "And so as we advocate for all of our families, that means advocating for our immigrant community as well."

Asked about her fondest memories of The Center, Jacobs recalled the 2006 opening of the Sunburst Youth Housing Project, which houses formerly homeless LGBT and HIV-positive youth.

"The first time we gave a key to a youth, he couldn't stop crying," Jacobs said. "And when he finally stopped sobbing, he was talking about never having had a space where he was safe. A space where he didn't have to worry who was going to beat him, or who was going to yell 'faggot' at him, or who was going to steal his stuff. Those moments are everything."

This sprawling campus is a safe haven for LGBT people in Hollywood - Los Angeles LGBT Center

This sprawling campus is a safe haven for LGBT people in Hollywood - Los Angeles LGBT Center | the world of donnie harold harris | Scoop.it

Construction is currently underway on the new Anita May Rosenstein Campus, nestled on Santa Monica Boulevard in bustling Hollywood. At its core, the campus is going to be a safe haven for LGBT seniors and homeless youth.

Scheduled to open in 2019, the new amenity is a passion project for the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

It’s essentially an extension of the work they already do for the community in LA — with even more to offer.

According to their website, the campus will offer up to 100 units of housing for seniors and beds for homeless youth, up to 35 units of supportive housing for youth, a commercial kitchen, retail space, and more.

Gay Star News spoke to project manager Stephen Burn about the campus and its future for the community.

A dream come true
‘The Center has been dreaming of doing this for more than a decade,’ Burn told GSN.

In February 2014, the Center was able to purchase the land the campus is being built on, previously owned by the state. They bought it for $12.7 million in order to expand their efforts.

With all the housing and beds the campus will offer, Burn suggested there will be about 250 people living on site at a time.

Furthermore, the Center is also moving their youth center, currently at a different location, to the campus. The administrative and executive teams will also move to the campus. The Center’s original location will become a dedicated space for healthcare.

Working with the LGBT community to improve their lives
‘Everything the Center currently does will now be done from the new campus for more people,’ Burn said.

Some of the programs offered will include support groups, a youth academy for classes, job training, addiction recovery, legal advice, and more.

The commercial kitchen, which the Center’s never done before, will not only offer meals, but allow residents to work there and learn basic food preparation skills.

Burn continued: ‘We’re also putting in a retail space. It potentially might be an employment opportunity.’

The Center also worked with the LGBT community, people in the area, and local businesses on the project.

‘It was really important to us that we didn’t just impose a big gay thing on Santa Monica Boulevard with a big glass bubble around that said, “This is just for us.” We want the space to be easily accessible, warm and welcoming for everyone.”

One example of working with people are the campuses inside courtyards and landscaping.

‘When we talked to our youth clients, many complained when they’re on street, they’re getting hassled and bugged the whole time. They have nowhere relatively safe where they can be outside. Now they can hang out in the open air, and relax, but it’s still enclosed. We probably wouldn’t have thought to put them in ourselves.’

A success story
The Center has had tremendous success in making their dream to better serve LGBT people a reality.

‘We initially had a target of $25 million,’ Burn explained when the Center approached the local community about getting involved to support the campus. ‘So far, they’ve dug even deeper and come up with an excess of $40 million.’

It doesn’t end there, however.

‘We had hoped to get the first ever $1 million donation to an LGBT services organization from a living donor. We’ve now got 16 of them. It’s way exceeded our expectations.’

The largest donor is Anita May Rosenstein herself, who’s given over $7 million. Plus, the Center itself has saved $15 million of its own money for the project.

The Center is now aiming for a new goal: $50 million.

Ultimately, the enthusiasm for the project shows how necessary it is for the community. Spaces like these go a long way in helping vulnerable people live richer and more fulfilled lives.

‘The response has been overwhelming,’ Burn finished. ‘It’s indicative that people recognize there’s a need to do what we do. We want it to be inspirational.’

UCSD Police Investigate Harassing Voicemail Left at LGBT Resource Center as Potential Hate Crime

UCSD Police Investigate Harassing Voicemail Left at LGBT Resource Center as Potential Hate Crime | the world of donnie harold harris | Scoop.it
On Dec. 20, a harassing voicemail was left on the main voicemail line of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Resource Center at UC San Diego. The call was made at 6:19 pm and included hateful and derogatory messages aimed toward people who identify as homosexual.

The voicemail was forwarded to the Office for the Prevention of Harassment and Discrimination, which is responsible for resolving matters of discrimination by investigation.

The message was also forwarded to the UCSD Campus Police, which opened a formal investigation. It was determined that the person who made the phone call, who gave an identification in the voicemail, is not affiliated with UC San Diego.

“Because the caller was not a UCSD affiliate, there are no policies from the university that apply to the situation. The caller was protected in their speech via the First Amendment [of the United States Constitution]. The First Amendment protects virtually all speech, no matter how unorthodox, offensive or distasteful,” Dr. Shaun Travers, Campus Diversity Officer and Director of the LGBT Resource Center told the Guardian. “As a public research university, UC San Diego supports everyone’s right to free speech. This discourse, however, was not civil, respectful, or reasoned, and was deeply offensive and hurtful.”

A detective with the University Police Department has told the Guardian that the investigation is still ongoing and that it has been submitted as a potential hate crime. The case has been turned over to the City Attorney’s office who will decide whether to file charges. If charges are filed, the suspect may be asked to either surrender to city officials or post bail.

“We have not received a phone call like this in many, many years,” Travers stated. “In the mid-‘90s, this was a common occurrence on the answering machine of the student organization that was a predecessor to the LGBT Resource Center.”

According to the OPHD’s Annual Security and Fire Safety Report, three hate crimes were reported at UCSD in 2016. In 2014 and 2015, there were none. Recently published FBI statistics have also highlighted a rise in hate crimes throughout the country in the past few years.

Travers said that the voicemail serves to remind the Resource Center goal of their goal.

“The mission of UC San Diego’s LGBT Resource Center is to be a diverse and open space for all members of the university community to explore issues relating to sexual and gender identities, practices and politics,” Dr. Travers told the Guardian. “This voicemail was a reminder that we need to continue to engage our community on and off campus in order to continue the dialogues which move all people towards respect and inclusion.”

Dr. Travers also noted the strong support from the UCSD administration for the Resource Center. Students, staff, and faculty can use the school’s Free Speech Website to better understand their rights to expression.
