The demand for two services provide by the Lexington Gay and Lesbian
Service Organization has increased over the past year and the
organization has moved to beef up those services. The GLSO Phoneline
has installed a voice menu and there has been an increased demand for
speakers from the GLSO Speakers Bureau.

On October 25, the voice menu was initiated on the Phoneline. People
calling the Phoneline number (231-0335) can now hear a short
presentation of nine different topics. Topics callers can choose from
