The Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center provides programming and services to strengthen and support the LGBT community across the Greater Lehigh Valley. 
We provide
frequent cultural and educational programs on a variety of cutting-edge LGBT topics, promote LGBT health and wellness, provide LGBT cultural competency trainings for non-profits, businesses and government agencies, produce the bimonthly Valley Gay Press and provide LGBT resources on our website and through our LGBT Infoline.
Across the country, LGBT community centers provide critical services to LGBT people in need and host exciting LGBT cultural and educational programs. We currently operate as a virtual center, but the Lehigh Valley's vibrant LGBT community needs and deserves a physical LGBT community center and we plan to open one, 
with your help!
Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center is building the Lehigh Valley's first LGBT community center. Once completed, our Center will provide direct services to members of the LGBT community, provide frequent cultural, educational and health promotion, and serve as an anchor non-profit in a residential neighborhood critical to Allentown's downtown revitalization efforts. The Center is not currently open.

Silent Witnesses of Central PA (SWPA) is an organization of gay and straight allies dedicated to helping the GLBT community have safe and peaceful events by providing a non-confrontational buffer between participants in GLBT events and those who would condemn them. We provide visual protection from \"street preachers\" and protesters at events such as Pridefests, the showing of films such as Jim in Bold, or staging of plays such as The Laramie Project, using our bodies and rainbow umbrellas as shields. In times of need, we intervene to prevent confrontations between protesters and event participants, often acting as escorts for those who would like to attend such events.

We are not counter-protesters. Instead, we provide a visual representation of support for those in our society who may feel marginalized. Our purpose is to act as a \"human spiritual firewall\" between GLBT folks and those individuals who believe GLBT\'s should be condemned. Silent Witnesses stand ready to prevent confrontations while welcoming and supporting GLBT participants to the event they are attending.
