Shoulders to Stand On Volunteers

The History of the Gay Community in Rochester, New York

Call for Volunteers

The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley has undertaken an exciting and important community project which produced Shoulders To Stand On: The History of the Gay Community in Rochester, New York. This Community Project belongs to you – members of the GLBT Community and the Greater Rochester Community. Upstate New York is the birthplace of the Suffragist and Abolitionist movements of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglas. The Rochester gay community has continued working for equality and freedom for all. The GAGV wants to be sure that the record of this work and its impact on Rochester and the Genesee Valley region survives as a part of New York State’s rich cultural, political, social and economic history.

We are asking for volunteers for this Community Project to help in many different areas. Whether you have 15 minutes or 15 hours, we need your help.
