October is LGBTQ+ History Month, are you familiar with our local LGBTQ+ organizations?
The San Mateo County Pride Center was the first ever LGBTQ+ community center in San Mateo County. Whether seeking behavioral health services or gathering in solidarity with others to share stories, build relationships, learn, grow, and heal together, LGBTQ+ individuals and communities throughout the Peninsula have a space to call their own.
Outlet, in Redwood City, empowers lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning youth and builds safe and accepting communities through support, education and advocacy. It is a youth centered organization which services support the emotional, physical, and social development of youth as whole individuals.
In support and awareness of LGBTQ+ History Month, Redwood City Public libraries created a history-rich reading list, check it out here, if you’re interested!
