One of the benefits of WCRC’s new building is that we are neighbors with The Pacific Center, the oldest LGBTQ center in the Bay Area. As neighbors, it only makes sense that we co-host a queer/trans event, no? We hope that members of the LGBTQIA community and their supporters will come by to experience WCRC’s new home. You are welcome here!

On July 13, we will have a panel of folks from the LGBTQIA community who will share the various ways that cancer has affected their lives.

Everyone welcome. Registration appreciated.
