Oct. Community Conversation: Race & Inclusion in LGBTQ Community


October marks one year since the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations' (PCHR) held their historic hearing on Gayborhood racism. October's Community Conversation: Race and Inclusion in the LGBTQ Community will provide updated information and an outlet for community feedback on this issue. Representatives from PCHR will be on hand to discuss the work being done to address the long standing concerns raised at the hearing and what progress they have seen on Gayborhood racism in the past year. We will also work collectively with community members to identify strategies to combat racism and discrimination moving forward.

Community Conversations are an initiative pioneered by the Office of LGBT Affairs and Mayor’s Commission on LGBT Affairs to cultivate an interactive community forum—specifically addressing the concerns of the Philadelphia LGBTQIA community. Through discussion, breakout groups, and Q & A, the Community Conversations seek to engage the insight and expertise of the community in addressing pertinent issues and working collaboratively to identify solutions.

Connect. Learn. Get Involved.
