BAGLY's 31st Anniversary Celebration is TONIGHT

BAGLY's 31st Anniversary Celebration is TONIGHT, and I wish I was there instead of home sick again (it's just a cold, though). I usually attend this event, and donate my artwork to its silent auction. I was a youth member and leader from 1993 to 1999 (ages 17 to 23), and have been a board member and a staff member (Office Manager).

The Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth (BAGLY) is a youth-led, adult-supported social support organization committed to social justice, and creating, sustaining and advocating for programs, policies and services for the GLBT youth community. BAGLY also provides weekly and monthly social activities and special events for youth ages 22 and under. These activities provide an opportunity for young people to socialize, have fun and develop a sense of personal and community identity. Now celebrating its 31st anniversary year, BAGLY is the oldest and largest organization specifically for LGBT youth in Massachusetts, and has served over 30,000 youth since its founding.

---------------------

This year we are honoring Beth Leventhal, Exectutive Director and The Network/La Red with our Michael Pumphret Distinguished Leadership Award. Read more about their wonderful work below.

The Network/La Red

The Network/La Red was founded in 1990, and is a survivor-led, social justice organization that works to end partner abuse in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, BDSM, polyamorous, and queer communities. Rooted in anti-oppression principles, our work aims to create a world where all people are free from oppression. We strengthen our communities through organizing, education, and the provision of support services including hotline, safe home, support group, and advocacy. The Network La Red understands oppression to be an imbalance of power intrinsically linked to the privileges bestowed on some at the expense of others, based on but not limited to: race, ethnicity, gender expression and identity, class, ability, sexuality, religion, citizenship status, age, language capacity and history of incarceration and court involvement. Partner abuse exists to achieve and maintain control, and reflects and perpetuates the larger violent culture, which condones and rewards interpersonal, institutional and imperialist abuse of power in order to control and/or exploit groups of people. The Network/La Red links domestic violence to all other forms of violence, oppression and abuse, because the values and tactics behind each are identical. The Network/La Red defines anti-oppression as the beliefs, actions, and policies that aim to eliminate the imbalance of power within our society.

Please take a moment to forward this information to friends, family and colleagues who may support BAGLY's programming for GLBT youth. Thank you!
