Long Island Gay PTSA

Hello Long Island Gay PTSA!  

We are writing with 3 exciting announcements to kick off LGBT Pride Month:  

(1) Our next meeting!

Looking forward to seeing you at the Long Island Gay Parent Teacher Student Association (LI Gay PTSA) General Meeting on Tuesday, June 18 at 7-8:30pm at LGBT Network’s new Hauppauge LGBT Center located at 125 Kennedy Drive, Suite 100 in Hauppauge.  Since it was such a hit last time, we will also have our pre-meeting Mixer at the Café in the lobby of the Hauppauge LGBT Center at 6:30pm.  The meeting will begin promptly at 7pm.  

(2) March with us at Long Island Pride on Sunday, June 23!  

If you are interested in joining us in the LI G PTSA Marching Contingent with LGBT Network in the Long Island Pride Parade on Sunday, June 23, please respond to this email with your name, the name of any guests you’ll be bringing, t-shirt sizes for all marchers, and the best contact information for you so we can follow up with details.  For more information about all of Long Island Pride events, check out https://prideonthebeach.org/

(3) Attend LGBT Network’s LGBT Center Grand Opening and/or one of the Open Houses!
