"Our Stories" Daniel


The nearly 2-year-old pandemic has ripped apart so many lives, and this is especially true for the LGBTQ+ Community. We are only beginning to gain a sense of the widespread misery that it has brought to so many.
What we do know is that we, here, at The LOFT LGBTQ+ Community Center are here to help.

We are here to meet the unprecedented level of need that so many in our community are experiencing.
COVID has affected the LGBTQ+ in varying ways depending on the person and it has demanded a comprehensive response because everyone matters and no one should be made to suffer hardship alone.

This is why we developed "OUR STORIES" a compilation of 4 stories of people from the LGBTQ+ spectrum whose lives were affected by the pandemic and how The LOFT can assist with these needs. In order to do all of this, we need your help.
