The Seattle Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Commission has decided to “address and present the concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens” with a Community Center.
The Community Infrastructure Committee has decided to establish an LGBTQ Center because the committee supports, “community efforts to expand, improve and establish community spaces and organizations providing culturally competent services to LGBTQ communities in Seattle,” according to the plan.
An Office of LGBTQ Affairs at City Hall has also been talked about.
Last week, publisher of Seattle Gay News and president of Capitol Hill Community Council, George Bakan, said he would like to see a community center that expanded beyond just an LGBTQ center.
The commission is 15 representatives of Seattle appointed by the mayor and city council. Meetings are held every third Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Seattle City Hall.
