The Globe and Mail recently published an article titled Coming out all over again: Why the first gay-rights generation faces familiar challenges in old age. The article speaks to the renewed struggle for acceptance by LGBTIQ seniors and features a couple of our very own, Ginny Lundgren and Paulette Kupnicki.

Hi folks. This is just a reminder that our monthly potluck is the second Sat. of each month, and the next one is Saturday, October 11.
Doors open at 5:30 pm for set up at the Windsor Pride Community, Education and Resource Centre at 422 Pelissier St., and we welcome any one who can come to give us a hand with the set-up
Dinner is at 6:30 sharp, followed by the movie, "Grease".
The review says “Rydell High's most famous graduating class is going back to school. A newly restored print brings the highest-grossing musical of all time, "Grease" (1978), to the big screen as a sing-along. Join Danny and Sandy with your own crew of T-Birds and Pink Ladies for a carnival ride back to those amazing summer nights!"
Lorraine & Joyce are your hosts for this event. If you have any questions about the event, please call the Centre at 519-973-4656.
Bring a dish for 8 people to share. Since we have gone “green”, please bring your own plate, beverage cup, and cutlery; and remember to take them back home. We will be serving coffee, tea, bottled water, and pop at .50 each.
Remember that this event is free, and is sponsored by the 50+ Proud Group. All ages are welcome for both the dinner at 6:30, and the movie portion which begins about 7:30 pm.
The Windsor Pride Community, Education & Resource Centre is a smoke, alcohol and drug free environment.
Greg Monforton, founder of prominent Ontario law firm Greg Monforton & Partners, has made a considerable donation to Windsor Pride’s anti-bullying efforts in support of its upcoming fundraiser, The Big Reveal 3.
The anti-bullying movement is something very close to Monforton’s heart. He and the rest of the firm are honoured to have a part in furthering the development of Windsor Pride’s programs for youth suicide prevention and anti-bullying action. Expanding on the organization’s existing programming is a cause worthy of support and celebration—one that Greg Monforton & Partners is proud to be involved with.
The LGBTIQ youth and their allies deserve a supportive and welcoming environment, one in which they feel protected and empowered. By contributing to Windsor Pride, Monforton hopes to magnify the reach of its existing programs and help the organization flourish within the community. The battle against bullying is picking up steam, and Greg Monforton & Partners is honoured to stand beside Windsor Pride and fight on behalf of our region’s youth.
The firm looks forward to a successful and fabulous fundraising event at The Big Reveal 3!
