On Wednesday, two representatives from the Gay Community Center of Richmond make their way to the White House to meet President Obama during an LGBT Pride Celebration.
GCCR president Jay Squires and program director Cindy Bray will be attending the White House event with community activists from across the nation.
Squires will also be representing Centerlink, the national organization of LGBT centers. He is a member of their Board of Directors and expects four other LGBT center executive directors to be in attendance at the event. It will be Squires’ second time in attendance after an LGBT reception held during the Christmas season.
