The Prairie Pride Coalition is working with the results of a Multi-Cultural Leadership Program survey to address the needs and priorities of lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgendered people in McLean County. The survey was completed about a year ago and since then the PPC, using the results of the survey, has been working to develop programming and increase communication with the LGBT community.
David Bentlin is the PPC Board president. Neil Alcorn worked on the MCLP team conducting the needs assessment survey. Bentlin says while perceptions are changing, many view the gay community as a homogenous block.
The Prairie Pride Coalition dedicated to the implementation of full civil rights protections for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people. See the survey results at ppc-IL.org.
