New LGBTQ Non-Profit Organization Formed in Vermont

greenmountains_smBRATTLEBORO, Vermont – Green Mountain Crossroads, a new organization for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer community, has formed and will hold an official launch party on Friday, January 25, at 6 p.m. at the Backside Café in Brattleboro, VT.

Green Mountain Crossroads (GMC) is a non-profit organization with a mission of supporting the local rural LGBTQ community in being visible and connected with each other. Based in Brattleboro, GMC will feature community events, news and information from the tri-state area of southeastern Vermont, southwestern New Hamsphire, and northwestern Massachusetts.

GMC hosts an interactive Community Calendar at its website – – and an email list for announcements.

One of GMC’s primary goals is to keep the local LGBTQ community informed of events and activities of interest, and maintain information on resources for LGBTQ individuals.

As 2013 progresses, GMC will also host workshops and events for the community, including performances by renowned performers such as Peterson Toscano. Toscano visited Brattleboro with his show “Transfigurations: Transgressing Gender in the Bible” in 2012, and plans are underway to bring him to Brattleboro again this year with his new show.

The official launch party on Friday, January 25 is a public event, open to the LGBTQ community and straight allies alike. Refreshments will be served and drawings for door prizes will take place. Snow date is Friday, February 1.
