Welcoming Congregation Events

LGBT Film Nov 16 at Kellogg-Hubbard Library
“Gen Silent” is a documentary about the discrimination and homophobia that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals encounter as they age and enter assisted-living facilities. After struggling to come out of the closet and lead dignified lives in a biased world, many LGBT individuals are forced back into the closet at a time when they are most vulnerable to abuse. A discussion will be following the film, which is co-sponsored by the Kellogg-Hubbard Library, AHEC, and UCM’s Welcoming Congregation Committee. The film begins at 6:30 pm.

Six More People Needed for Nov 20th Street Demonstration
Currently, there are 10 people signed up to carry signs at the intersection of State and Main Streets in Montpelier on Nov 20th to mark International Transgender Day of Remembrance. Our goal is to have 16 people present from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. We’ll wear black armbands and carry signs from corner to corner to let the public know that a trans person is murdered every three days. To sign up, please contact Nancy Schulz.
