City Seattle’s LGBT Center Is Going, But Not For Good
posted by January 11 at 12:02 PMon
Rumors of the Seattle LGBT Center’s (SLGBTC) demise have, apparently, been greatly exaggerated. The SLGBTC has to be out of their location at 1115 East Pike by midnight on Monday, and they’re selling off all of their furniture.
According to an SLGBTC volunteer, the center has had “funding issues,” which forced them to move out of their current home. However, SLGBTC co-president Jerry Stewart is optimistic about the Center’s future, and says they’ll be temporarily using Equal Rights Washington’s offices at Harvard and John.
Despite SLGBTC’s sudden downsizing and office-clearing sale, Stewart says the center is definitely coming back. “[We’re] refocusing but we’re not going away,” he says.
