Seattle LGBT Commission celebrates 'Year of Pride and Joy'

The Seattle LGBT Commission will host a free evening event to celebrate the Commission's 2012 accomplishments and discuss its goals for 2013 on Wednesday, January 16, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Northwest African American Museum (2300 S. Massachusetts St., Seattle).

'A Year of Pride and Joy' is an opportunity for LGBTQ community members and the general public to meet commissioners, city officials, and community leaders. The event is free and open to the public. Brief remarks will begin at 7:30 p.m., and snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.

A YEAR TO BE PROUD OF
The event will celebrate the Seattle LGBT Commission's 2012 accomplishments:

o Creation and distribution of the 'Total Bull' youth anti-bullying resource card throughout Seattle Public Schools;

o A successful Hate Crimes Forum that brought together the community, state and county attorneys, and the Seattle Police Department to address community concerns; and

o Advocacy for marriage equality, gender identity-inclusive homeless shelters, and an LGBTQ community center.

LOOKING AHEAD
'A Year of Pride and Joy' is also an opportunity for community members to provide input on the LGBT Commission's 2013 work plan. Based on issues identified in the 2011 Seattle Snapshot survey, the commission's current work plan includes actions to:

o Address youth homelessness;

o Strengthen hate crime prevention and education;

o Increase understanding between Seattle's LGBTQ community and the Seattle Police Department;

o Advocate for an economic empowerment initiative for Seattle's Transgender community; and

o Promote the creation of an LGBTQ community center as part of the Capitol Hill light-rail station.

The Seattle Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) Commission advises the mayor, City Council, and city departments about LGBT issues, recommends policies and legislation, brings the LGBTQ communities and the larger Seattle community together through long-range projects, and ensures that city departments fairly and equitably address LGBTQ concerns as individuals and as a protected class.
