Yesterday the Ferndale Affirmations LGBTQ community center received a message from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and openly gay state Sen. Jeremy Moss.

“I wanted to take time to say thank you to our frontline workers, especially the LGBTQ+ workers, who have been working hard to provide services so diligently during this time,” Whitmer said. “At community centers like Affirmations, many efforts have been taken to ensure vital services like their food distribution program, support groups and mental health services continue to everyone in our great state.”

Whitmer’s sentiments were echoed by Moss, who was the first openly gay person elected in Michigan’s 11th state senate district. He went on to note his pride as a representative and the importance of having LGBTQ voices in state government.

“It’s an honor to provide our LGBTQ community a voice every day in the state Senate, as we’re finally heard in that chamber for the first time in Michigan history,” he said.
