From the Board of Directors and Executive Director
Greetings from the San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Community Center! As proud as we are to share this report of the Center’s two-year record of accomplishments, we’re even more proud of the many, many names it contains. They are the names of the Center’s friends; names of people whose lives we have touched, who’ve invested time and money in our vision, and of people who visit and benefit from the Center’s programs and services. Together with your name, they comprise a roll-call of our community, and that’s what the Center is all about. The Center is here to connect the diverse members of our community to resources, opportunities and each other to build a stronger, healthier and more equitable world for LGBT people and our allies. We’re coming up on our tenth year, a significant milestone. It’s been a long and at times difficult road to get here. We’ve done it with your support. The entire Board, staff and cadre of Center volunteers’ efforts have created a strong foundation. As a result, we truly believe that we are at an exciting turning point – one from which we will grow stronger and that now allows us to embark on new initiatives to support and benefit our community. In the coming year, these initiatives will include investing in technology, and increasing our online presence and the resources available to you; solidifying the Center’s finances; and reconfiguring the Center’s community and rental space to better suit the community’s needs. As a team, the Board and Executive Director are leading our fundraising efforts, building a diverse and committed board of directors, and advocating vigorously and effectively in the community. We’ve made great progress in the past two years and are excited as we move forward! This is all about responding to the changing needs of our community and creating a Center that celebrates and safeguards our strong community values of compassion, tolerance and self-expression. For everyone. There is something for everyone at the Center but our services and celebrations need you to make them part of the community. We hope to see you soon and often.

Imagine if the most severe physical pain and sorrow in your life were inflicted by the people you trusted most. In the spring of 2007, Belo Cipriani was beaten and robbed of his sight at the hands of his childhood friends.

Blind: A Memoir chronicles the two years

immediately following the assault. At the age of 26, Belo found himself learning to walk, cook, and date in the dark. Armed with visual memory and his newly developed senses, Belo shows readers what the blind see. He narrates a recondite world of the blind, where microwaves, computers, and watches talk, and where guide dogs guard as well as lead.

Praise for Belo Cipriani and “Blind: A Memoir”
“...a gripping story, beautifully told, about one man’s bout with unimaginable adversity and his inspirational ascent from the depths” Jane Ganahl, Journalist and Co-Founder of Litquake “...makes an important contribution to queer and disability studies as well as being a rewarding experience for the general reader.” Susan Krieger, Professor, Stanford University

Center Community Profiles
Joshua shRaDeR, Program Participant After relocating to San Francisco, Joshua found being new to the city daunting and stressful. Joining the Center’s San Francisco Newcomers’ Assistance Program (SNAP!) helped him meet new people and develop nourishing relationships. Since 2007, he has helped plan, organize, and run many social and networking events for SNAP! events that build community and prevent isolation among many gay, bisexual and trans men. According to Joshua, “SNAP! has always helped me out when I’ve needed some help, and in turn I’ve been able to provide for and witness what kind of impact a community program like SNAP! can do for others.” pamela penisTon, Community Partner The Center has active partnerships with over 70 community-based groups, including the Queer Cultural Center (Qcc) that hosts many of their annual National Queer Arts Festival events at the Center. Founded by Pam in 1993, Qcc is a multiracial community-building organization that fosters the artistic, economic and cultural development of San Francisco’s LGBT community. She chose to partner with the Center, in part, because our multi-purpose room rentals are available on a slidingscale. Such partnerships leverage Center resources to bring our community together, while insuring existing community services are not duplicated. gaRy yamaDa , Program Intern Gary came to the Center understanding that by helping others to find jobs, he would gain valuable experience to build his own career. Over a series of months, as a member of the Center’s Economic Development department he conducted community and employer outreach for the Transgender Job Fair, helped publicize multiple events, and even pitched in to help the Center’s fundraising as needed. According to Gary, “Perhaps the most memorable experience was when some visitors to the Center approached me to thank me for my work in organizing the job fairs. To them, being able to speak with employers in a safe and inclusive environment was unheard of.” QuinCy TanneR, Event Volunteer A key member of our Soiree 8 anniversary committee, Quincy worked on the silent auction, organized food donations, worked with sponsors and eventually landed himself the role of a lifetime as the event’s registration coordinator. He then returned to take on many tasks associated with the Center’s 5th Annual Pride Party, including creating a dedicated event website. Events such as the Soiree and Pride Party bring our community together and help sustain the Center. Generous volunteers like Quincy make that possible. sTeFanie sChuR, Center Women Present Stefanie was a lesbian mom in search of a healthy queer-friendly community when she moved to the Bay Area in 2003. Her volunteer work for the Center led Stefanie to join Center Women Present (CWP), an all-volunteer Center initiative that brings the Bay Area community of diverse queer women together. Stefanie has organized events and created CWP’s website, and became a Steering Committee member in 2009. She’s proud of what CWP has accomplished, from social events like Match-Up, Big Bunch of Whatever, and Newcomers, to support groups like Need To Talk and Women’s Self-Defense, to performance events like Girls On Film and Speak Up. wes FReas anD peTe elTing, Founding Donors Among the Center’s first investors were Pete Elting and Wes Freas. Pete went on to become an early board member, ensuring a strong foundation for San Francisco’s first permanent LGBT Community Center. Wes continues to be a force today at the Center as the source and inspiration behind our annual June Margaritas on the Deck Pride Party. What originally began as a small gathering of friends to celebrate his birthday has grown into a community-wide Pride celebration and important Center fundraising event, underwriting the Center’s critical safety net of direct services targeting the most vulnerable in our community.

READY TO TRAVEL THE WORLD EXACTLY THE WAY YOU ARE?

When birds of a feather fly together, it’s nice to have a friendly place to touch down. Fortunately Air New Zealand flies to many gay-welcoming destinations, like London, the South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand. And we depart from welcoming gateway cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Honolulu. That means your entire journey can be relaxed, and you can devote your attention to the joys of getting away from it all, on your own, in a group, or with your totally significant other. On Air New Zealand, we’ll help you settle in for your journey with genuine kiwi hospitality. We offer renowned food and wine service on board all our flights originating in the US and Canada. Menus are designed by our awardwinning chefs, and feature fresh New Zealand flavors paired with highly rated New Zealand wines. Air New Zealand is an IGLTA member and a proud sponsor of major gay and lesbian community events in several countries.

Proudly Serving Our Community

Yesterday…
We developed one of the first residential care facilities in the nation for patients in the last stages of AIDS.

Today…
We continue to serve our community providing quality care throughout the city reaching every neighborhood in San Francisco.

Tomorrow…
We will provide a new acute care facilities at St. Luke’s and new location at Geary and Van Ness. At the Davies campus we’ll continue to serve the LGBT community with quality health care and a new neuroscience Institute and regional rehabilitation center.
