Pride Library space, relaxing space with big TV for movies. More events and
gatherings, future weddings and civil unions.

keting and someone to work with youth programming.
Basic Office Supplies, including in house printing . . . . . . . . . . $550

Vision: More subscribers and a larger number of donors. As we increase the

{ community. You can help us right now by giving a subscription as a Christmas gift!
Basic Programming: Gay Straight Alliance for Youth, Discussion Group, Pride
Library, Diversity in Gender Alliance, 40+ Women, Speakers Bureau, Pride
Gallery, ActOut plays, Social Events, and Pride Month Activities. All of these
run on volunteer energy, most of them depend on having meeting space in the
Pride Center and advertising through the newsletter.
Vision: Money to advertise our groups and projects in local publications such
as Ace. Add additional projects as needed, such as a PFLAG chapter, groups for
young adults and parents. The Gay Straight Alliance for Youth (GSA) is an exam-
ple of one program that we would like to expand. We would like money to adver—
tise the GSA on teen radio stations More money for financial support for youth
wanting to attend GLBT or related events (we have a fund established). Money
for tutoring and a college scholarship fund. A paid staff person to run youth
Programming, who could visit high schools regularly and do training about work-
, ing with GLBT youth. A place for youth to get together on weekends.
