Over the past year, we have all collectively witnessed great public shifts in recognizing the equality rights of the LGBTQ community. Marriage equality and transgender visibility signify our movement. While these moments are significant, there is still a lot of work to do to heal our community. The rates of homeless LGBTQ youth at 40% and transgender individuals experiencing suicides nine (9) times the national average are unacceptable. These figures remind us that our work around advocacy, visibility, family support, outreach and education is critical in combating these alarming statistics.
In celebration of our successes and commitment meeting our goals, VROC is set to host its 3rd Annual Fundraising Event, “Bring Back the Night: Prom through the Decades,” on October 23, 2015 at VENUE in Huntington Beach, CA.
