GLBT Commission

What is the GLBT Commission?

The mission of the Cambridge GLBT Commission is to advocate for a culture of respect and to monitor progress toward equality of all persons with regard to sexual orientation and gender identity. We are committed to promoting and monitoring policies and practices that have a positive effect on the health, welfare, and safety of all persons who live, visit, or work in the City of Cambridge with regard to sexual orientation and gender identity.

The main focus of the Commission is:
1) Help address the needs of GLBT seniors,
2) Help address the needs of GLBT Youth, and
3) Work with the Police department and Emergency service departments.

Special Event: Film Screening, Q&A, and refreshments

Thursday, October 15 from 6pm-8:30pm In the Main Library at 449 Broadway

Join us for a free screening of "The Year We Thought About Love" followed by a Q&A with the film director and several cast members. The film goes behind the scenes of one of the oldest LGBTQ youth theaters in America, with the camera crew slipping into classrooms, kitchens, subways, and rehearsal rooms with this fearless and endearing troupe.

Light refreshments will be served and local community partners will be present to talk about their programs and services they offer to LGBTQ Youth. 

This event is presented by the Cambridge GLBT Commission, the Somerville LGBTQ Community Liaison, & the Cambridge Public Library.
