Arson at The Center

Early this morning, an individual attempted to set fire to The Center. They were unsuccessful and no damage was done to the building. As we enter the final week of Pride Month, the 50th Anniversary of Stonewall and major celebrations take place this weekend in New York, San Francisco, and around the world, this attempted arson and hate crime against our community reinforce the need for LGBTQ+ Pride events. Our equality, rights, and our lives remain at risk.

We are glad that our building is safe. This vengeful act reminds us to be alert, be safe, and if you see something, say something. To everyone around the world attending Pride events this weekend, let this be a reminder of why you are celebrating and why our fight for equality continues.
