We are making history while curating history through the Q&A's.  We've updated this LGBT History Month specific fundraiser to focus much-deserved See More

THE STORY:

Since May 2015, #AMPLIFY has been sharing the lived experiences of LGBTQ neighbors throughout Western Pennsylvania as a series of blog posts. During LGBT History Month, we are focusing on fundraising to help us continue engaging the community and building the trust necessary for their investment of their story. 


We have two fundraising events scheduled this month - a collection of "stuff" at Goodwill in Lawrenceville (10/14) and a Guest Bartender event at James Street Gastropub (10/24) and we are excited about both.


We hope to raise funds specifically tied to LGBT History Month because that's one essential component of our project. We are documenting history and creating history by doing so. 


Being able to to show foundation and larger donors that we have support from the community is vital to earning their support. We'd really like to get one donation from each of the 26 counties this month. 


As of October 2017, we have published 233 Q&A's from LGBTQ neighbors throughout Western Pennsylvania. 

- 25% of contributors identify as bisexual

- 26% identify as transgender

- 22% identify as People of Color

-27% identify as queer

- 30% identify as lesbian

- 21% identify as parents, grandparents and/or caretakers of childrens

- 17% identify as 50+

- 20 out of 26 counties are represented


Where else can you turn to hear these voices?
