R.U.1.2? Queer Community Center Launches
Wall of Awareness Project

October 1, 2006 – R.U.1.2? Queer Community Center launches the Wall of Awareness Project with hopes of raising awareness about discrimination, homophobia and acts of violence among Vermont’s LGBTQ community. This project will be open for discussion and feedback at R.U.1.2?’s Fall open house October 10th from 5 – 8 pm (34 Elmwood Avenue).
 
Each year Vermont’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Community faces issues of discrimination, homophobia and acts of violence. Many of these incidents go unnoticed by the general population. We here at R.U.1.2? Queer Community Center hope to bring public awareness to these acts. For one year, October 1, 2006 though October 1, 2007, our lobby will be open for victims to make anonymous statements about their experience and then post them on the Center’s walls. We ask that community members make a statement to make a difference.
The statement can be artwork or a word or sentence on a piece of paper. The Wall of Awareness Project, developed for the Safe Space Program at R.U.1.2?, will be a voice for the LGBTQ community to make a statement regarding discrimination, homophobia and acts of violence.

SafeSpace provided ongoing support, advocacy, information and referrals to 67 survivors of partner abuse, sexual violence and bias crimes during Fiscal Year 2006 (7/1/2005-6/30/2006). This represents a 3% increase over the number of survivors we worked with last year.

In October 2007, we will look back and examine what LGBTQ discrimination, violence and homophobia looked like in our state and explore what that means to the quality of life in Vermont.
