Welcome to the Center
The resource center is an open place for the Michiana region's LGBT community where we celebrate the diversity of everyone.
The Center's mission is to build a stronger community through support, education, and advocacy for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals as well as their families and friends by providing a physical space, a resource library, and programming that meets the individual, relational, and collective needs of our region.
Oct. 29th - Human Rights in South BendOctober is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) history month. Come to the GLBT Resource Center of Michiana to learn about the local political history of our community. This panel discussion will focus on the city of South Bend’s Human Rights Ordinance. After a nine-year political battle, a coalition of South Bend activists and the Common Council successfully amended the Ordinance to include gender identity and sexual orientation. The amendment, still intact today, outlaws discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in areas of employment, housing, public accommodations, and education. This event includes a panel discussion of activists who were involved in South Bend Equality, a group that united to change the Ordinance: Stacy Davis, Charlotte Pfeifer, Catherine Pittman, and Rhonda Redman. There will also be time for audience members to share their own memories and stories.
