In addition to these new service projects, this week, Gay for Good relaunched its website, www.gayforgood.org, to improve communication with ten National Chapters. The new features enable the organization to meet its goal of doubling the number of chapters in the next year.
“When we show up it changes the narrative about LGBT+ community,” said Gay for Good in a statement. “This national organization of volunteers has logged thousands of hours with its 10 chapters throughout the USA and is steadily growing to become the leaders in making a social impact.”
