The West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA) will foster communication and discussion with the second installment of the “Healing Circle” series. This month’s series will kick off on Tuesday, October 6, and focus on the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) community to recognize LGBTQ+ History Month. The first “Healing Circle” series was hosted by Kärnl Moon Collective over the summer and focused on racial equality following nationwide protests.
“We were overwhelmed by the positive responses to our first series led by Kärnl Moon Collective and wanted to keep fostering these connections and discussions,” said Tiffany Faublas, DDA marketing director. “With October being National LGBTQ+ History Month, we decided to partner with Compass Community Center to help bring awareness to the LGBTQ+ community in our area and make Downtown WPB more inclusive and vibrant for all.”
The four-week program is designed to bring the community together through virtual presentations and open discussions around everything from understanding gender, HIV, acceptance, and mental health issues in the LGBTQ+ community.
“Our goal at Compass is to engage, empower and enrich the lives of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community here in Palm Beach County,” said Claudia Harrison, Compass’ Chief Communications Officer. “By partnering with the West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority we can help reach that community as well as others who may be misinformed or confused about what it means to be LGBTQ+ in today’s society.”
