Carrboro.- El Centro Hispano and its sponsors are proud to announce the 21st Anniversary Gala of its LGBTQ+ programs. The event will be held in Carrboro Century Center on Saturday, November 19th from 6:30 p.m to 10:00 p.m.
Since 2001 El Centro’s LGBTQ+ programs have served as a solid foundation to build leadership, grow collective power, create awareness, and provide resources to uphold the rights, dignity, and safety of Latinx, immigrant, and LGBTQ+ communities in the Triangle area of North Carolina.
The LGBTQ+ Programs consist of five groups: Mujeres en Acción, EntreNosotr@s, HolaLatino, FTM Latinx and the NuestraVoz Community Advisory Committee. Each group focuses on different populations to address the various needs of individuals in the LGBTQ+ Latinx Community.
“We are excited to celebrate the achievements of El Centro’s LGBTQ+ programs,” said Elsa Huerta, LGBTQ+ Director. “The LGBTQ+ Anniversary is an important event honoring the LGBTQ+ Latinx community and allies that go beyond supporting and fighting for equality for the LGBTQ+ Latinx community,” added Huerta.
El Centro invites the community to join them in this event that aims to foster unity, inclusiveness, and empowerment by recognizing the members of our LGBTQ+ program’s support groups, staff, partners and allies. In addition, they are incredibly proud of this year’s Frida Kahlo Award Recipients and their contributions to our local LGBTQ+ communities.
