28 Spring <strong>2018</strong> - Spring <strong>2019</strong> OutReach <strong>Directory</strong>


July <strong>2018</strong><br />

Welcome to the <strong>2018</strong>-<strong>2019</strong> OutReach <strong>Directory</strong>. Our <strong>Directory</strong> provides a lot of<br />

information for our community: listings of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and<br />

transgender (LGBT) supportive non-profit community groups, advertisements<br />

from hundreds of LGBT supportive businesses, and additional governmental<br />

and national LGBT group listings.<br />

OutReach and our parent organizations <strong>The</strong> United and Madison Gay &<br />

Lesbian Resource Center have served as Madison and south-central Wisconsin’s<br />

LGBT Community Center since 1973. After working together for decades, the<br />

two groups merged in 1998 and moved to our longtime location at the Gateway<br />

Mall in Madison. In June of 2016 we moved our location to 2701 International<br />

Lane, Ste 101, Madison WI 53704.<br />

OutReach’s mission is to “promote equality and quality of life for LGBT people<br />

through community building and human services.” Our vision is “to create a<br />

community where the presence and contributions of LGBT people are celebrated,<br />

where intolerance is challenged and defeated, where justice prevails, and<br />

where civil rights of all people are valued and respected.”<br />

One of the important services we have provided for decades is the <strong>Directory</strong>.<br />

OutReach Program Services include:<br />

• Resource Identification and Referral — We provide a wide array of LGBT print<br />

material at our office and community event tables, referrals by phone and in<br />

person, cyber-center access, websites, social media, and our Center Connection<br />

E-Newsletter.<br />

• Publications — Our monthly Calendar & Guide and annual <strong>Directory</strong> as well<br />

as other print material.<br />

• Peer Counseling — Support by phone or in-person with our front desk<br />

volunteer and paid staff.<br />

• Social and Support Groups — 17 LGBT social/support groups currently meet at<br />

OutReach, including OutReach programs and community groups.<br />

• Speaker’s Bureau — Our panels of volunteer speakers travel throughout<br />

south-central Wisconsin, speaking to schools, businesses, governmental<br />

entities, and civic groups about many aspects of LGBT life, rights, and culture.<br />

Our LGBT 101 presentations provide a more formal in-service on LGBT issues for<br />

employee and professional associations. For more info: www.lgbtoutreach.org.<br />

www.lgbtdirectory.org 29


• Pozitively Yours social/support group — a safe and supportive place for everyone<br />

living with HIV and/or AIDS. All are welcome: Men, women, LGBT, straight,<br />

everyone living with HIV and/or AIDS. Spouses, partners, whether they are positive<br />

or not are also welcome. It meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month.<br />

• LGBT Senior Alliance — A co-operative project with the Madison Senior<br />

Center, this program offers the Gay & Gray discussion group, quarterly social<br />

events, and our LGBT Senior Advocate staff position.<br />

• Advocacy — We act as an advocate for many clients that face discrimination.<br />

• Earl Greely Memorial Library — is one of the largest LGBT lending libraries in<br />

the Midwest with more than 6,000 volumes, including fiction and non-fiction.<br />

• This year we will host the OutReach Pride Parade for the 5th year in a row.<br />

<strong>The</strong> parade will be held Sunday August 19th and the line up will begin at 12:00<br />

noon. <strong>The</strong> kickoff will be at 1 pm. We will march up State Street to the Capitol<br />

Square, circle the Square and end with a rally at the top of State St. <strong>The</strong> rally<br />

will begin about 2 pm, and will include speakers and music. Please join us!<br />

We are proud to lead an organization that does so much for so many. Last year<br />

we served over 3,000 individual clients, and provided more than 24,000<br />

client contacts to these individuals. We encourage you to stop by our center<br />

for information, to join a group, or check out a book. Also, please consider<br />

making a generous financial contribution or contributing your time and talents<br />

as a volunteer for OutReach LGBT Community Center.<br />

We hope the OutReach <strong>Directory</strong> will be a valuable resource for you and your<br />

family throughout <strong>2018</strong> and into <strong>2019</strong>. Please support the businesses and<br />

nonprofit organizations that you find in this book and when you use their<br />

services let them know you found them through our publication.<br />

• Discussing Race, Privilege, and Racism in the Queer<br />

Community<br />

Please join us for a deep and engaging conversation about race, privilege and racism<br />

within the queer community. This group will highlight how we, as queer people, can<br />

perpetuate racism and white supremacy with or without realizing it (in our dating,<br />

our workplaces, friendships, etc.).<br />

Learn how to recognize these instances and how to interrupt them within ourselves<br />

and within our spheres of influence. Attendees will be challenged to recognize their<br />

own privilege (race, gender identity, gender, ability, etc.) and will leave with action<br />

steps on how to move forward.<br />

This discussion is hosted and sponsored by OutReach LGBTQ Center and co-sponsored<br />

by Groundwork and Ethnic Studies Association – Edgewood College.<br />

This space is intended for people who identify as queer. Please respect this intentionally<br />

queer space.<br />

National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Organizations<br />

Center Link<br />

CenterLink is the national association of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community<br />

centers. It was founded in 1994 as a member-based coalition to support the development of<br />

strong, sustainable LGBT community centers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> organization has played an important role in supporting the growth of LGBT centers across<br />

the country and addressing the challenges they face, by helping them to improve their organizational<br />

and service delivery capacity and increase access to public resources. Based in Fort<br />

Lauderdale, FL, CenterLink works with other national organizations to advance the rights of LGBT<br />

individuals and to provide LGBT community centers with information and analysis of key issues.<br />

Serving over 200 LGBT community centers across the country in 46 states and the District of<br />

Columbia, as well as centers in Canada, Israel, Mexico, China and Peru, CenterLink assists newly<br />

forming community centers and helps strengthen existing LGBT centers, through networking<br />

opportunities for center leaders, peer-based technical assistance and training, and a variety of<br />

capacity building services.<br />

Our efforts are based on the belief that LGBT community centers are primary change agents<br />

in the national movement working toward the liberation and empowerment of LGBT people.<br />

Serving over 600,000 people, they are the heart and soul of the LGBT movement and are vital<br />

to our current well-being and dreams for the future. Whether they provide direct services,<br />

educate the public or organize for social change, community centers work more closely with<br />

their LGBT constituency and engage more community leaders and decision-makers than any<br />

other LGBT network in the country.<br />
