Charlottesville is going to have a LGBT center

If you’re interested, there’s a meeting Friday, 11 December at Cville Coffee.

As an aside, I was at Cville Coffee this morning for a meeting … they seem to be stepping it up a notch. A nice paver patio in front for the warmer months, a stage is being built in the “adult” section for music and other acts, and I noticed an ABC license application on the front door.

Charlottesville has proven itself as gay-friendly before … frankly, I’d like to think we’re friendly to everyone – that’s one of the comments I frequently get from clients relocating to the Charlottesville area, “Everyone’s so friendly!” is a common statement.

No rainbow flag flies outside the red-brick mansion in downtown Charlottesville. No lambda sign hangs in the window. From outside, the Inn at Court Square looks like most of the other handsome Federal-style buildings lining Jefferson Street.

But inside, amid the antique wood furnishings, chandeliers and Oriental carpets, owner Candace DeLoach has fashioned this guesthouse into one of the most gay-friendly hotels in Virginia. While much of the clientele is straight — parents of university students, business executives, couples in town for a getaway — gay men and lesbian travelers know this as a welcoming haven where they can check in and kick back without worries of second glances or raised eyebrows.

    If Cville had this meeting awhile ago, why is there not an LGBT Center Now?!
    I’ve been here for 5-6 years and this damn town seemed gay-friendly to me. I’m bi and I don’t really wanna hide anymore. I’m 15 and need to meet more people like me. The LGBT  Community needs a place for be ourselves.

    What did they say about the center anyway?
