Census help at KGLRC

For the first time ever, gay and lesbian couples will be counted in the U.S. Census, and the Kalamazoo Gay and Lesbian Resource Center wants to help make sure that happens.
To assist in that endeavor, the center will have census staff on-site throughout the month of April to assist members of the LGBT and allied community who have not yet completed their 10-question census form. How should I represent myself if I’m transgender? Is my partner considered a spouse or unmarried partner? How can I make my voice heard as an LGBT American? These questions and more will all be answered.
Assistance will be available at 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Mondays, 1-4 p.m. Wednesdays and 2-5 p.m. Fridays.
The center is currently out of Queer The Census stickers, to be placed on the back of census envelopes, but is expecting to receive more soon.
The KGLRC is located at 629 Pioneer Street in Kalamazoo. For more information, visit http://www.kglrc.org or call the center at 269-349-4234.
