Sponsorship Opportunity for HUGE LGBT Non-profit Info Fair on 10/3

Posted by Corey Kaster on September 8, 2009

 LGBT Non-profit information Fair – Oct 3rd

On October 3rd from 1 to 5 pm, the Portland Gay Men’s Chorus will be hosting an LGBT information fair on Pioneer Courthouse Square and providing a free concert from 3 pm to 4:30pm to kick off it’s 30th Season and to act as a drawing card.  This information fair is about non-profit activities that people in the Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Transgender community can get involved in.  The tie-in here is that October 11th is National Coming Out Day.  We are hoping to provide information for people who are considering “coming out”, newly “out”, new to town, or just looking to expand their horizons about healthy activities they can get involved in within the LGBT community.


Many organizations will be gathered into “theme tents” such as:
