In this video we hear from Blair, a client and longtime supporter of Mazzoni Center, on how the organization has impacted her life, and the lives of others in Philadelphia’s LGBTQ communities.
Blair points to the significant gains in visibility and recognition made by LGBTQ communities over the years. “I’m very happy to be a witness to the progress that the community has made,” she says.
“When our community - the Mazzoni community - is healthy and vibrant, that makes the Philadelphia community stronger, more healthy and vibrant,” Blair adds.
She also talks about the importance to her of reaching out and helping others in the community – whether formally or informally.
“I want to give back because I really feel as though it’s necessary,” Blair says. “I’ve had a wonderful life, and I know there are a lot of struggling people out there.”
