QUILTBAG is Coming Back!

I think QUILTBAG is one of the most exciting changes to the Pittsburgh LGBTQ community building and activism efforts! I believe this because QUILTBAG is grassroots! Because QUILTBAG is full of passion! Because QUILTBAG is full of honesty and real desire for a better community that includes everyone who is gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, queer and all those who choose not to fit into a label but who are a part of our whole community. Join the Quiltbag Facebook group! Get engaged in real change. You can make it happen.
