That was fast.
Just posted yesterday about the Pennsylvania Commission of LGBT Affairs being devoid of Black trans representation,and now comes word that the oversight has been fixed.
Ciora Thomas of Pittsburgh has been added to the commission as of today. And yes, she’s a proud girl like us.
She’s the founder of Sisters PGH, serves on the Pittsburgh LGBTQIA+ Advisory Council secured a partnership and position on the board of Proud Haven, an organization that provides a safe shelter for homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth/adults.Congrats Ciora! I know you’ll be an unapologetic voice for Pennsylvania trans folks. Kudos also to whoever was reading and listening to Ernest and myself, and fixed the representation problem with the LGBT Commission that Ernest Owens and I were calling out.
