We accomplish this through support, education, and advocacy. www.gbpflag.org

 

The Laramie Project is a production about how a community was impacted by the attack and death of a young gay man, Matthew Shepard in 1998. WCT is offering community programs in association with our production to help our community to continue to build our support of LGBTQ+ individuals within WCT, MCA and the greater surrounding community.
