FERNDALE – The Affirmations Lesbian and Gay Community Center’s 2004 Big Bash event is not just another hotel event. It’s a virtual journey through time, a historical expedition of our very own gay community in Southeastern Michigan as it celebrates fifteen years serving the LGBT community, and there are promises of a historic announcement that may prove to be a first for everyone building community.
See the movers and shakers who started Affirmations. Fly into the 1990’s, visiting the birth of our Youth Program, the Pittmann-Puckett Art Gallery, the Bayard Rustin Library, our coming out groups, rap groups and more. Hang on to your seats as we remember the turbulent years when the Center barely kept its head above the clouds, then sit back and relax as we glide into the new millennium with the opening of our new Health Services Program, senior and family programs.
Come fly with us. Come fly through fifteen years of being there for Southeastern Michigan’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals.
