MGLCC’s Impact in Commercial Appeal
The Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center was featured in Wendi C. Thomas’ Commercial Appeal article on February 11th. In the article entitled “Center has soft spot for kids in hard times”, Ms. Thomas refers to the generous $50,000 gift that the MGLCC received to expand their Youth Empowerment Services (YES) and illustrates just how this program has touched the lives of gay and lesbian youth in the area. The stories of two young men, Daniel and Nick, especially pull at the heart strings. They are two teenagers, out of likely many, whose lives were positively impacted, and possibly saved, due to the MGLCC and the YES program. You may read the full article here.
