Honorees have represented the LGBTQ community in a positive light, and have supported the efforts of the Pride Center. AIDS Walk Team Raises Vital Funds for Center Services Team member Joe Guerrero a Top Fundraiser Overall for Florida AIDS Walk On Sunday, March 20, the Pride Center again will participate in the 10-kilometer Florida AIDS Walk through Fort Lauderdale. All funds specifically raised by the Pride Center team will return to the Center for use in vital services and programs to people living with HIV/AIDS. The Center s team will be joined by thousands of others committed to action to halt the escalating spread of HIV/AIDS in South Florida. I clearly remember last year s AIDS Walk, says Joe Guerrero, the team s top fundraiser. I walked up to a sea of green Pride Center t-shirts worn by men and women, young and old, inclusive of a true community. Last year s Pride Center team raised around $23,000. Local lives benefitted from that success. I marched with pride realizing the impact the money I raised would go back directly to help my HIV positive brothers and sisters at the Center, says Guerrero. Guerrero again sets an ambitious pace for the Center s participation in the Walk. He s the second-highest individual fundraiser for the Walk of all teams and participants. I have raised over $9,000 from my family and friends, says Guerrero. I look forward to walking with my Pride Center family as we work as one for those we have lost and for those alive that still need our help. The Pride Center team boasts many outstanding fundraisers, including Douglas Cureton, Tony Miceli, Chris Caputo, Ralph Caraglia, Paul Mullen, Anthony Johnson, Keith Ackerman, Jim Cooper, Jeff Black, Shelly Weinrib, Stacy Shervan and Will Cudequest. Their efforts and the work of the more than 75 other Pride Center walkers will make a difference in our community long after the walk. I promise you when you walk with The Pride Center family at this year's AIDS Walk, you will walk away with some beautiful memories and a full heart, says Guerrero. Will you join us? Opportunities still exist to join or sponsor the Pride Center team financially. Contact Kristofer Fegenbush at or (954) for more information, or visit and follow the AIDS Walk link to our team page.

2 2 Paul Hyman, LCSW, MBA The Pride Center s leadership team had the opportunity to complete a Developing Organizational Excellence curriculum with in-kind professional coaching assistance from Jack Johnson and Angela Robinson. The team engaged in powerful conversations and learning that resulted in: clarity of what we as a leadership team care about, improved communication, better management of capacity, and creating a strategy to guide the implementation of our Shared Commitments. Defining the team s commitments to each other, to the Center and to the Community focused the senior staff and the Board on what we will we accomplish and by when. As a result, during the next months, the Center s leadership team has adopted the following Shared Commitments, related to the Center s mission: Reciprocal Communication Advocate for community and inclusion host discussions and events, a Community Advisory Board, and Town Hall Meetings. Understand needs -- conduct a community needs assessment Evaluate current progress -- quality assurance/improvement and program evaluation Messaging (Marketing and Public Relations) Tell the Center s story -- develop a compelling Case Statement of who we are Expand Cultural Leadership Preserve and convey our unique LGBT essence and identity Develop the Pride Center s national prominence Support the greater community Fiscal Strength Expand Resources --grants, donors, sponsors Upgrade Financial Management Systems The Pride Center s capital campaign effort is called Vision 2015 and is led by Team 2015 Chair, Doug Tinklepaugh. Vision 2015 charts our course to achieve a debt-free Center, by the end of Forty percent of the $4.75 million purchase price of our new Center has already been paid. Through Vision 2015 we will engage donors at a variety of levels to contribute annually for the next five years, resulting in a debt-free Center. In addition to naming and recognition opportunities for larger donors, the campaign s Visionary Club level makes it easy for almost Create a Strategic Plan Realizing these Shared Commitments introduces exciting ways to engage the community in the Center s work. There are two valued ways for individuals and groups to contribute: donate time and donate money.

4 4 Stars of the Rainbow 2011 STARS OF THE RAINBOW continued from Page 4 Our honorees represent individuals, civic groups and businesses that exemplify the spirit of volunteerism and activism.

My service to our community is in direct response to God s call on my life and that is, in part, to let the GLBTQI community in South Florida know that God loves them and accepts them just the way they are. Don t let anyone tell you differently! Nikki Adams of Broward House and Donna Markland of the Broward County Health Department Community Stars of the Year Nikki Adams career as a female impersonator has spanned over 34 years, traveling throughout the United States and abroad bringing her unique act and much soughtafter emcee capabilities to countless nightclubs, theaters, corporate events and fundraisers for varied LGBT and mainstream organizations.

The Trevor Project Non-Profit Star of the Year The Trevor Project is a nonprofit organization and the leading national organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. The Trevor Project operates The Trevor Lifeline, a tollfree number and confidential service staffed by trained counselors. The Trevor Project also provides guidance and vital resources to parents and educators in order to foster safe, accepting and inclusive environments for all youth at home and at school. Executive Director Charles Robbins has spent his career in non-profit management.

South Florida Gay News Norm Kent, Publisher Media Star of the Year The successor to Express Gay News, SFGN was inaugurated in January of 2010, designed to be a progressive, credible, newsworthy LGBT newspaper for South Florida, illuminating the lives, breadth and dimensions of the LGBT community. SFGN prides itself on reporting openly and honestly on the community s wins as well as its wounds, its accomplishments as well as its failures. Its publisher, Norm Kent, is a constitutional rights and criminal defense attorney who has been practicing law in South Florida for over 30 years. Formerly the morning drive radio talk show host for WFTL 850 AM, Kent has served on the Board of Directors of local AIDS agencies, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws. Our management and staff appreciate the acknowledgement that this award embraces, said Kent in response to being chosen the Media Star of the Year. However, for a free community print newspaper to survive in the 21st century, even one with a niche as clearly defined as our own, the very people here giving us this award also have to support our efforts and energies with an ongoing financial commitment in advertising, determining for yourselves if you want the history of the LGBT community written by guides showing shirtless men holding up cocktails or fact-driven newspapers which chronicle our lives. The future and that choice, is ours to make. U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz Public Official Stars of the Year Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen represents Florida s 18th Congressional District, a diverse area which includes Miami, Little Havana, Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Miami Beach, Westchester and the Florida Keys. Ros-

5 5 Stars of the Rainbow 2011 Lehtinen was born in Havana, Cuba and at the age of eight, her family was forced to flee the oppressive communist regime of Fidel Castro where the family settled in Miami. In 1982, she was elected to the Florida State House of Representatives and the Florida Senate in 1986, becoming the first Hispanic woman to serve in either body and was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1989 the first Hispanic woman to serve in Congress. She has been a long-time supporter of policies that help end discrimination and violence against individuals as a result of their sexual orientation or gender identity expression. She was a founding member of the House Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus. The Caucus works toward the extension of equal rights, the repeal of discriminatory laws, the elimination of hate-motivated violence, and the improved health and well being for all regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity expression. She fought tirelessly to repeal the oppressive Don t Ask, Don t Tell policy of the military. She cosponsored the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act and to provide assistance to state and local law enforcement agencies to facilitate the investigation and prosecution of violent, biasmotivated crimes among other pro equal rights legislation. For more than eighteen years, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has dedicated her public life to working on behalf of the people of South Florida. On January 4, 2005, she was sworn in as a member of the United States House of Representatives representing Florida s 20th Congressional District which includes portions of Miami Beach, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale and west to Sunrise. As Founding Vice-Chair of the House LGBT Caucus, Rep. Wasserman Schultz has consistently voted to expand civil rights for the LGBT community by ensuring federal protection from hate-motivated violence and by providing remedies for unfair discrimination in the workplace. She U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz has fought for equality for all of Florida s families from full marriage equality to repealing Florida s painful ban that prohibits loving gay and lesbian parents from adopting children. Just a few months ago Rep. Wasserman Schultz voted in favor of repealing the discriminatory Don t Ask, Don t Tell policy that prevents gay men and lesbians from serving openly in the armed forces. She also supports the Obama Administrations recent decision to stop defending the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in federal court. While making strong progress toward equality, Rep. Wasserman Schultz knows we have a long way to go to achieve true equal opportunity for LGBT Americans who still face undue prejudice and treatment. I am humbled to receive this honor from the Pride Center, said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. As your representative in Washington, I promise to continue my fight for equality and justice so that we may all live, love and prosper in a more perfect union. Arther B. Smith Arthur B. Smith Tyler Healis Sustainability Award Arthur Smith moved to South Florida in Already a successful lawyer in Massachusetts, Smith decided he would sell his house up north, close his law offices and relocate to South Florida where he specializes in real estate development, estate planning and corporate law. Over the years, Smith represented many estates which have contributed to the Pride Center at Equality Park. He also represented the John C. Graves estate which oversaw the creation of the John C. Graves Charitable Fund at the Community Foundation of Broward, from which the Pride Center has received sizeable grants. Mr. Smith represents the Gilbert Corwin estate which has bequested $350,000 to the Pride Center. PALS Project Volunteers Volunteer Star of the Year For years, the PALS Project has provided local gay, bisexual and transgender-identified men with vital social support, accurate HIV information and effective tools to lead safer, richer lives. Two of the guiding principles in the PALS Project are to give back and to use peer support. Non-paid staff (volunteers) are graduates of the PALS programs and who come back to work in partnership with paid staff in almost all aspects of initiatives. Volunteer serve as: (1) peer facilitators in programs, small groups and individual coaching sessions; (2) peer educators in community workshops; (3) quality assurance/improvement evaluators; (4) customer relations specialists; (5) activity/event planners; and (6) care team associates to help participants with special needs. PALS volunteers provide the Center and the community literally with thousands of hours of service each year. In addition, PALS volunteers spearheaded the Pride Center s participation in 2010 Florida AIDS Walk, raising over $23,000 for HIV/AIDS services at the Will Spencer Center. I received so much from the LIFE program that I became passionate about giving back and helping my brothers who are HIV-positive, says Will Cudequest, one PALS volunteer. But what really happened is that I got even much more back when I volunteered! Thank you so much -- my life has changed! Without the daily service, energy and dedication of volunteers, the PALS Project as we know it wouldn t exist. Period, says Kristofer Fegenbush, Deputy Director of the Center. I m inspired, humbled and challenged by how they impact the lives of so many people in our community regardless of health status, age, race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or income including mine. Will Spencer Alan Schubert Humanitarian Award Will Spencer moved from New England to Fort Lauderdale over 23 years ago. He s an avid tennis fan, is openly gay and HIV positive who has lived without traditional medications for over 17 years he is also a major advocate for complementary therapies. For the bulk of the last 15 years, Spencer has been a full time volunteer for many different charitable organizations. He currently or has sat on the board of directors for the Broward County HIV Health Services Planning Council, CAMP4Health, Kids in Distress, Children s Diagnostic and Treatment Center, Dublin School (Dublin, NH), Gay and Lesbian Fund, Broward AIDS Partnership and is a lifetime member of Leadership Broward. Spencer is also a Pride Center Founders Circle member, supporter of the Transformers and Sunflower Circle of Friends, Broward House Spirit of Hope Society recipient, a member of the Legacy Society and the list goes on and on. Being honored is always a double-edged experience, said Spencer upon hearing that he is receiving a Stars of the Rainbow Award this year. On one hand it is especially nice to be recognized for doing what I can. On the other, Cleve Jones (founder of The Quilt and visionary pioneer for the LGBT movement) once wisely pointed out that, It feels a bit as if I am a fraud, not worthy. I get so much more in return than I could ever fully express with words.

9 9 HIV Counseling and Testing Expands Off-Site Services Pride Center Testing Adds Locations Throughout Broward County Recently, Pride Center Testing (PCT) began off-site HIV counseling and testing in several new locations throughout South Florida. The Club Fort Lauderdale, a local private gentleman s club, welcomed PCT to provide testing services on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 p.m. to 12 midnight and at the popular Sunday poolside barbeque from 12 noon to 5 p.m. PCT added three private testing sites through Broward Addiction and Recovery Centers in Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale. The Pride Center now also provides weekly testing at Ana G. Mendez University in Miramar on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and provides testing at Florida Atlantic University health fairs and other local events. We re excited about these expansion opportunities, says Listron Blue Mannix, Minority Testing Initiative Manager for the Pride Center. As we further develop our relationship with the communities we serve, Pride Center Testing will flourish. We continue to encourage the community to seek testing. We commit to providing timely results and offering thoughtful, compassionate counseling. We continue our role in the overall strategy to fight HIV/AIDS in our communities. In 2008, the Center began off-site testing in addition to its popular on-site Rapid HIV Testing at the Cooperative Feeding Program, a local homeless shelter. The Center continues to test there every Monday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Center also began testing at the Black Banana Night Club in Since then, PCT has been involved in testing at community events, health fairs and other organizational locations. Over the years, we ve developed a good Listron Blue Mannix reputation and relationship both with the Florida Department of Health (DOH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) allowing us to become a leading provider of HIV testing, counseling, referral and linkage to care in the community, says Mannix. We ve been doing this well for over 15 years.

Cocktails and a panel discussion will accompany the event on Wednesday, March 23 from 6 to 9 pm at Cinema Paradiso. Bullied chronicles the story of Jamie Nabozny, a student from Ashland, Wisconsin who stood up to his anti-gay tormentors with a federal lawsuit. The suit led to a landmark decision that held school officials accountable. Despite that ruling, anti- LGBTQ bullying continues to be a severe problem. Today more than 80 percent of LGBTQ students report being harassed at school. Schools across the country still are unwilling or afraid to openly address anti-gay bullying. The panel discussion after the movie will feature the Southern Poverty Law Center, Sheriff Al Lamberti and Paul Hyman from the Pride Center. Admission is a $100 tax-deductible donation. For more information contact Jason Burns at (954) or Transgender Medical Symposium Attracts Crowd Over 80 Professionals Attend First-Ever Education Event at the Center Last month, the Pride Center hosted Broward County s first Transgender Medical Conference. Over 80 medical and clinical professionals participated actively in the day s activities. For those in our community that identify as transgender, there are significant challenges accessing culturally competent medical and clinical services, says Linda Jain, Program Operations Manager at the Center. This conference represented one step towards addressing those challenges. The Symposium aimed to educate the medical and clinical communities about the unique care required for this medically underserved community. Injustice at Every Turn: A Report of the National Transgender Discrimination Survey states that 50% of the respondents reported having to teach their medical providers about transgender care and 28% postponed care The Pride Center is proud to sponsor and host several exciting events in celebration of Women s History Month. This is an historic month at the Pride Center for women, says Donna Woessner, Women and Senior Service Coordinator at The Pride Center. We are thrilled to be offering a wide range of events in celebration of Women s History Month. Women's History Month is an annual declared month worldwide that highlights contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. The National Women s History Project has named this year s Women s History Month Our History is Our Strength. In honor of this theme, the women at the Pride Center and throughout the community have organized events that will highlight some of our history throughout the decades.

10 10 The Pride Center Welcomes Two New Members to the Leadership Team The Pride Center is proud to introduce new leadership team members and structure for 2011 Lea Krauss By PAUL HYMAN Returning Board members Richard Stoll and David Feinberg have assumed officer roles on the Board. Richard began his term as Board President in January and David serves as the new Board Secretary. As the Board grows, the Center is supported by their solid leadership. Kristofer Fegenbush has served as PALS Project Manager at the Center for the last five years. In January 2011, he began his new role as the Center s Deputy Director. Kristofer s established record as a seasoned manager and strong leader, renders him a well-prepared candidate to oversee the Center s programs and operations. Newly appointed Board member, Lea Krauss -- originally from Long Island, NY, has resided in Greater Fort Lauderdale since Lea is also a Director of the Gay & Lesbian Lawyer s Network of Broward County, has her own Criminal Law Firm in Fort Lauderdale and is a former Broward County prosecutor. Ms. Krauss focuses her law practice in the areas of general criminal defense, domestic violence restraining orders and traffic ticket defense. Ms. Krauss resides in Fort Lauderdale and enjoys the companionship of her long-term partner and their two dogs. The Center also welcomes Jason Burns to the new Major Gifts Officer role at the Center. Jason comes to the Pride Center with a strong work history, most recently as a member of the Development Team at United Way of Broward County. With significant experience in local community involvement and political activism, Jason was a police officer for more than four years until an injury on the job introduced the need for career change. In his role as Major Gifts Officer, Jason s primary focus will be on both Founders Circle membership development and on the Center s Vision 2015 Capital Campaign, as well as related corporate and foundation sponsorships. Jason looks forward to blending his passion for his career with achieving ever increasing fiscal sustainability at The Pride Center. Jason Burns LBT Women Art Expressions The works of 10 local women who served an important role in the artistic community were featured at The LBT Women Art Expressions Gallery Opening and Reception. The collection was as eclectic and unique as each of the women who shared a part of herself with every creation. World AIDS Day Inspired by Annie Lennox s campaign, Pride Center volunteers spearheaded an effort to provide t-shirts proclaiming HIV Positive for World AIDS Day. Regardless of health status, gender, sexual orientation, race or culture, Pride Center staff, volunteers and friends walked in solidarity through Wilton Manors. On this day, all embraced a positive mindset to combat stigma and advocate for vital services for people living with HIV/AIDS. Photographers: Vicki Hartsough and Bob Risse

12 12 Elton John AIDS Foundation Funds New Pride Center Program $75,000 Will Enable the PALS Project to Expand its Health and Prevention Services Drop in Living Room space partially funded by the Elton John AIDS Foundation grant encourages positive social support The Pride Center s well-known PALS (Positive Action for Living Safely) Project recently received a $75,000 grant from the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The newly funded LIFE Goes On program will allow PALS to upgrade its service to the community through peer education, wellness seminars, provider training and a drop-in space. This grant allows PALS to expand health and prevention work not only to men who are living with HIV but also to those in the community who are at risk for HIV, says Frank Gurucharri, PALS Project Manager. This is a natural evolution of our ongoing LIFE Program. New education and coaching opportunities will allow community members to develop behavioral health skills to enhance and protect their health and the health of their partners. The PALS Project currently offers health education, wellness empowerment, riskreduction counseling, service linkage, and emotional and practical support to the nearly 9,500 gay and bisexual men living with HIV in Broward County. PALS also offers two well known workshops: the five-week CHOICES program and the 17-week LIFE Program. PALS helps men lead safer, richer lives. For the last five years, the impressive performance of PALS Project staff and volunteers has allowed the Center to impact the lives and health of local gay, bisexual and transgender-identified men, says Kristofer Fegenbush, Deputy Director of the Pride Center. The expanding role of our Center as a hub of gay culture and advocate for HIV education, prevention and wellness support uniquely positions us to be highly successful in our collaboration with the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The new LIFE Goes On program will fund six areas of service. First, a wellness series of community presentations begins next week with a Happy Hiney Health dinner seminar. Second, PALS will develop PALS Peer Partners, a certification course and ongoing professional development coaching for volunteer peer educators. Third, the program will provide several peer-led community presentations on HIV, stigma and identify, including narratives from individuals living with HIV. Fourth, LIFE Goes On will provide HIV self-management educational seminars for community based providers. Fifth, the program will offer oneday self management workshops for people newly diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. Finally, the grant has allowed the establishment of a functioning Living Room drop-in space on the Equality Park campus. This safe space will encourage positive social support with community resource information, HIV/STI testing and intervention referrals, and linkages to health resources. Now PALS expands its peer power even more, says Ralph Caraglia, longtime peer educator and volunteer. This allows PALS volunteers greater opportunities to give back by preventing HIV and improving the health of our communities. Broward County, according to the latest ( ) epidemiological reports by the Florida Department of Health, has the highest rate of all HIV cases (59%) in the State. Annual participation in PALS programming has grown by more than 450% in the last three years, which includes helping the men already living with HIV in Broward County to enjoy healthier lives and to lower their risks of transmission. PALS LIFE and CHOICES programs are funded by the Florida Department of Health, Bureau of HIV/AIDS.
