Raleigh LGBT Center group's got "Milk" -- Rialto, 8 pm Thursday

Posted by on Tue, Dec 9, 2008 at 9:59 AM

From the Rialto's website: MILK opens at RIALTO on Friday, December 12th!  There will be a special premier showing on Thursday, December 11th at 8pm.  Tickets for this show are $10.00 each, with proceeds going to the LGBT Center of Raleigh.   Tickets for this show will go on sale at 6:30pm the day of the show at the Rialto box office.  Remember, the Rialto is cash only!

Center organizers are in early stages, looking to grow. They have a rudimentary website up with a mission statement that's copied below.


To strengthen individual and community development through social and educational activities; to facilitate the incubation of

supportive services and groups; and to identify needs and advocate for resources benefiting the diverse population of

lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual people, their friends and supporters within and beyond Central North Carolina.



• Providing space and opportunity to groups that benefit the LGBT community

• Providing educational services and resources

• Providing a safe and welcoming environment to promote fellowship throughout the community


• Volunteer your time and energy

• Offer suggestions

• Get your LGBT-related organization involved

• Attend or host a fund-raising event

• Donate money

• Spread the word

The LGBT Center of Raleigh is the Center of Out for Raleigh, the Triangle and Central North Carolina. It belongs to each and every one

of us and we all should embrace the project and claim ownership. It is what we make it and the potential is here to make this the best

Center in the Southeast, if not the country.

If you would like more information regarding the establishment of the

LGBT Center of Raleigh please email us at:

PO Box 152 / 514 Daniels Street / Raleigh, North Carolina 27605
