What's ahead:
Speaking Out for Equality is an online exhibit produced by the John J. Wilcox Jr. Archives that tells the courageous story of the struggle for LGBT civil rights in the courts and in the streets.

Join South Street Art Mart every Friday and Saturday in June for their 2nd annual Pride Month Artist Pop-Ups!

Each day queer artists will be set up in front of the South Street Art Mart where you can meet and buy directly from them! Shop small, shop local, support queer indie artists.
Flag Raising at City Hall
Please join us on Thursday, June 9, 2022, from 6:00 - 7:00 PM to celebrate our LGBTQ older adults and the work of Elder Initiative @ William Way. 

We’ll be broadcasting live from the award-winning gardens of the John C. Anderson Apartments, Philadelphia’s LGBTQ- friendly senior housing complex, and invite you to watch live and enjoy an evening of performances, speakers, awards, and community celebration!

In addition to celebrating the work of the EI @ WW, we are honoring the Pennsylvania Department of Aging for their accomplishments in promoting an LGBTQ-inclusive aging network and Michael Byrne for his years of service to the LGBTQ community and people living with HIV.
