The Charlotte Business Guild isn’t the only LGBT group making changes to programming or leadership. In fact, the Lesbian & Gay Community Center of Charlotte also made changes to its board officers. The Center’s former chair, Denise Palm-Beck, stepped down from that role at the end of her term in July and remains on the board. The Center’s former vice chair, John Stotler, has succeeded Palm-Beck as chair. Frank Kalian remains treasurer and Teresa Davis is secretary. Learn more at gaycharlotte.com.
On the activist front, a new grassroots group has formed. Queer Rising QC aims to “education, inspire, and encourage actions that will lead to a new world of acceptance and equal treatment of the LGBT community all over the world.” You can find the group on Facebook: facebook.com/qrisingqc.
