The LGBT Lyfestyles Expo was held on Jan. 12 in Uptown Charlotte at the Carole Hoefner Community Services Center. Two dozen businesses and community groups turned out to chat it up with community members and connect them to services and programs. Among them was the LGBT Community Center of Charlotte and the Human Rights Campaign, and others. The expo was organized by Crystal Long, a new member of the LGBT Community Center of Charlotte Board of Trustees.
