In the Know with Ian

Ian BTGAnother amazing Tantrums and Tiaras: Battle of the Bar Queens has come and gone. What a show and what a spectacle! It’s not very often you attend a production that includes a live cow with a drag queen singing “Climb Every Mountain.”  Thank you to all those that attended. We hope you thoroughly enjoyed it. Many thanks to the cast and the many people behind the scenes – a true testament of the amazing people in our community. Once again, we’re so grateful to Matt Ramon, Chris Barone and Brian Bond for so much dedication. For those of you who couldn’t make it, please give a huge congrats to the new Queen of Tantrums and Tiaras: Battle of the Bar Queens, Joey Adams from Gossip Grill as Marlena Von Tramp.

MARYAH Casino 2016Looking for something fun to do next month? Thursday, March 10, MARYAH (Metro Area Real Estate Professionals for Young Adult Housing) is hosting their annual Casino Night and Poker Tournament to support The Center’s Youth Housing Project. The evening will include a Vegas style Poker Tournament, Player’s Lounge, Blackjack, Craps, valuable grand prizes and giveaways.

Thank You to the S. Mark Taper Foundation
We are delighted to announce that The Center has received a $50,000 grant from the S. Mark Taper Foundation in support of our Youth Housing Project. Our youth are some of the most vulnerable members of our community, and those who are homeless – many as a result of family rejection – are particularly at risk. The generosity of the S. Mark Taper Foundation helps us provide critical housing and support services that can change the lives of these youth. We can’t thank them enough!

Program Spotlight: Senior Services50 and Better
The Center’s Senior Services has opened up worlds previously thought impossible for some. Our program, and “50 and Better Together,” strives to create a safe place for those 50 and up to access important resources and referrals related to health care, social services and other community activities. As San Diego continues to see a continually increasing number of LGBT seniors, it is vitally important that we are able to provide services to the more than 1,000 seniors who access our program each year. For more information, visit our website or contact LaRue Fields at seniors@thecentersd.org or 619.692.2077 x205.
