28 Spring 2018 - Spring 2019 OutReach Directory


July 2018

Welcome to the 2018-2019 OutReach Directory. Our Directory provides a lot of

information for our community: listings of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and

transgender (LGBT) supportive non-profit community groups, advertisements

from hundreds of LGBT supportive businesses, and additional governmental

and national LGBT group listings.

OutReach and our parent organizations The United and Madison Gay &

Lesbian Resource Center have served as Madison and south-central Wisconsin’s

LGBT Community Center since 1973. After working together for decades, the

two groups merged in 1998 and moved to our longtime location at the Gateway

Mall in Madison. In June of 2016 we moved our location to 2701 International

Lane, Ste 101, Madison WI 53704.

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

through community building and human services.” Our vision is “to create a

community where the presence and contributions of LGBT people are celebrated,

where intolerance is challenged and defeated, where justice prevails, and

where civil rights of all people are valued and respected.”

One of the important services we have provided for decades is the Directory.

OutReach Program Services include:

• Resource Identification and Referral — We provide a wide array of LGBT print

material at our office and community event tables, referrals by phone and in

person, cyber-center access, websites, social media, and our Center Connection

E-Newsletter.

• Publications — Our monthly Calendar & Guide and annual Directory as well

as other print material.

• Peer Counseling — Support by phone or in-person with our front desk

volunteer and paid staff.

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

OutReach, including OutReach programs and community groups.

• Speaker’s Bureau — Our panels of volunteer speakers travel throughout

south-central Wisconsin, speaking to schools, businesses, governmental

entities, and civic groups about many aspects of LGBT life, rights, and culture.

Our LGBT 101 presentations provide a more formal in-service on LGBT issues for

employee and professional associations. For more info: www.lgbtoutreach.org.

www.lgbtdirectory.org 29


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

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

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

or not are also welcome. It meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month.

• LGBT Senior Alliance — A co-operative project with the Madison Senior

Center, this program offers the Gay & Gray discussion group, quarterly social

events, and our LGBT Senior Advocate staff position.

• Advocacy — We act as an advocate for many clients that face discrimination.

• Earl Greely Memorial Library — is one of the largest LGBT lending libraries in

the Midwest with more than 6,000 volumes, including fiction and non-fiction.

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

The parade will be held Sunday August 19th and the line up will begin at 12:00

noon. The kickoff will be at 1 pm. We will march up State Street to the Capitol

Square, circle the Square and end with a rally at the top of State St. The rally

will begin about 2 pm, and will include speakers and music. Please join us!

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

we served over 3,000 individual clients, and provided more than 24,000

client contacts to these individuals. We encourage you to stop by our center

for information, to join a group, or check out a book. Also, please consider

making a generous financial contribution or contributing your time and talents

as a volunteer for OutReach LGBT Community Center.

We hope the OutReach Directory will be a valuable resource for you and your

family throughout 2018 and into 2019. Please support the businesses and

nonprofit organizations that you find in this book and when you use their

services let them know you found them through our publication.

Community

Please join us for a deep and engaging conversation about race, privilege and racism

and within our spheres of influence. Attendees will be challenged to recognize their

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

steps on how to move forward.

This discussion is hosted and sponsored by OutReach LGBTQ Center and co-sponsored

by Groundwork and Ethnic Studies Association – Edgewood College.

This space is intended for people who identify as queer. Please respect this intentionally

queer space.

National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Organizations

Center Link

CenterLink is the national association of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community

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

strong, sustainable LGBT community centers.

The organization has played an important role in supporting the growth of LGBT centers across

the country and addressing the challenges they face, by helping them to improve their organizational

and service delivery capacity and increase access to public resources. Based in Fort

Lauderdale, FL, CenterLink works with other national organizations to advance the rights of LGBT

individuals and to provide LGBT community centers with information and analysis of key issues.

Serving over 200 LGBT community centers across the country in 46 states and the District of

Columbia, as well as centers in Canada, Israel, Mexico, China and Peru, CenterLink assists newly

forming community centers and helps strengthen existing LGBT centers, through networking

opportunities for center leaders, peer-based technical assistance and training, and a variety of

capacity building services.

Our efforts are based on the belief that LGBT community centers are primary change agents

in the national movement working toward the liberation and empowerment of LGBT people.

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

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

educate the public or organize for social change, community centers work more closely with

their LGBT constituency and engage more community leaders and decision-makers than any

other LGBT network in the country.
