Erie Gay News recently received a letter of congratulations from Gov. Tom Wolf for 25 years of informing the LGBT community. The letter was actually sent out from Gov. Wolf's office in December to the local office, and the occasion to present it didn't come up until recently. Very thoughtful of Gov. Wolf!
It was great going to the Mercyhurst LGBTQIA Equality Club's Flaming Hearts Dance. Several students from Identity/EUP were also at Mercyhurst. Wonderful to see students/youth working together!
Very exciting to see Drenched Fur taking shape for April 12-15! Some parts of the weekend are available as a la carte options. In addition to the DJ Dance on Friday and Splash Lagoon, we will again be offering FREE HIV & STI testing on Saturday afternoon, More details in the next issue!
