Community Survey 2020

We have two more weeks for our Community Survey! It ends May 16. We are using the survey to build a plan for the PEC moving forward. If you supply us with your contact info, you have a chance to win one of several gift cards. Below is a clickable link for the survey.

#TogetherinPride and #MayDayStayGayQAF Fundraisers

We are so thankful to GLAAD, CenterLink, and Queer as Folk for creating fundraisers for the international collection of LGBTQIA+ Community Centers! You may have seen our social media filled with live posting during both livestreamed fundraisers. We have links to both videos of the livestreams below. Queer as Folk is also doing an auction through Monday at 11:59pm of various items from the show. All money raised will go to CenterLink connected Centers, which the PEC is part of.

Coming Soon: Community Calendar!

We are premiering a community calendar in the next two to three weeks on our website! This calendar will be for the LGBTQIA+ community of Western PA to use in one place. You will be able to submit events for our community to be involved with. They can be events at the bars, coffee shops, library, PRIDE events, etc. We are so excited to have a calendar of events available in one place for our community!
