Center for LGBT Health held grand opening celebration
Center for LGBT Health held grand opening celebration
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN Staff Writer

There was cake, lots of cake (provided by Cake Therapy and Cupcakes Royale), which made the opening of the Center for LGBT Health, (which now houses both the Gay City Health Project and Verbena) felt like a Queer tea party. Coffee was provided by the shop that is part of the center, Kaladi Brothers Coffee, and the atmosphere at the center was lively and joyful.

On hand for the ceremonies were Seattle City Councilmember Sally Clark and State Representative Ed Murray, old and new staff and board members of both organizations, and the new executive director of Verbena, Mo Malkin. They were joined by numerous representatives of other organizations, the female contractor for the center and the volunteers who had been a great part of the center's development.

Speeches were few, as the celebration mostly concentrated on tours of the lavish digs the two organizations now enjoy, which was made possible by grants from the City of Seattle and other local charitable sources.

So if you haven't been there yet, check it out and have a cup of coffee and a pastry in the center's new coffee shop. The Center is located at 511 E. Pike Street on Capitol Hill in Seattle.t
