Press Release


With PRIDE month (June) only a few weeks away, today, we remember and recognize those who have come before us.  We would not be here today as the virtual community center if it were not for those who took a chance and took a stand to dedicate themselves to operating the only Community Outreach Center here in Lubbock for the LGBT community.
