Frankel to host LGBTQ resource fair in Pittsburgh Saturday
PITTSBURGH, March 26 – State Rep. Dan Frankel, D-Allegheny, will host a first-of-its-kind resource fair for the LGBTQ community on Saturday, March 30, bringing together some of the state, local and non-profit organizations that support these populations and their loved ones.
Residents are invited to attend to learn about legal, medical and mental health services available, along with recreational opportunities and a legislative update from Frankel. The event will also include an inclusive family story hour, provided by the Carnegie Library.
For nearly two decades Frankel has fought for what is now known as “The Fairness Act,” which would ensure that Pennsylvanians cannot be fired or denied services because of who they are or who they love.
“I’m proud to represent a district where LGBTQ residents have access to resources that support their needs, and local ordinances protect them from discrimination,” Frankel said. “We’re going to keep up this fight until every Pennsylvanian enjoys those rights wherever they go in our state.”
The following groups will be taking part in the fair: Pennsylvania Interbranch Commission for Gender, Racial, and Ethnic Fairness; Gender and Sexual Development Program at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh; Central Outreach Wellness Center; Allies for Health Wellbeing; Adagio Health; Renaissance City Choir; Human Rights Campaign; PFLAG Pittsburgh; SisTers PGH; and general pro-bono legal counseling.
