Starting A LGBTQ Safe Space In Akron OH

Hey there! My name is Peach Summers! I'm Catchy isn't it?! Im 24 years old and currently reside in Kent Ohio. I just moved to the area a few months ago and didn't receive a very nice welcoming. As a matter of fact I went to a local bar in Kent that will remain unnamed and was very verbally and physically attacked by a group of homophobic males who didn't approve of my sexuality. This is a moment every person in the LGBTQ+ community have to worry about on a daily basis. Moving forward, my traumatic experience at the bar, has motovated me make what's called a safe space where the members of the LGBTQ+ can hang out without the anxiety of being judged just because society says we are different. SO what I'm trying to get accomplished here is to provide Kent/Akron Ohio with a place where members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies, can fellowship with one another, meet new people, start new friendships and become closer as one big community and be able to host Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings twice a month for anyone interested. All of that being said, in order to start my safe space, I am taking donations no matter how big or small, need of to purchase a small building where we can gather and have meetings somewhere within Akron Or Kent Ohio. Every donation will help make a difference someone's life for the better. Remember to spread Love, not hate. <3
