Hi everyone. I want to take a moment to thank all of our listeners. LGBT Stories is growing, and it is growing fast. Honestly, it's shocking to me. In only 6.5 months we have surpassed 12K downloads on iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher Radio. I receive emails from listeners all over the globe thanking us for what we are doing for our community. I want you all to know, each and every one of you is being heard. Unfortunately, I am unable to reply to them all but rest assured, I am working on it. All in all, I wanted to take a moment and simply say, THANK YOU. Thank you for your support, and your time listening. We are working on more amazing episodes hoping to bring light on all the stories our community has to offer the world! Thanks for listening.
It goes without saying that when having a show about LGBT people telling their life stories one would want one of the most successful and passionate activists on this planted to appear on the show. I consider this a major milestone for LGBT Stories. We’ve been working on this for quite some time now and I am more than pleased to share the amazing story of Lorri L Jean with you all.
For those of you who are not familiar with who Lorri Jean is, she is the CEO of the Los Angeles LGBT Center. She has directed the LA LGBT Center to become the largest most widespread LGBT centers in the entire world. Because of Lorrie’s passion and drive, the LA LGBT Center has been able to help our community reach levels that many generations before us could have only dreamed about.
In today’s episode, Lorri tells her story of where she came from, and what her climb to CEO has been like.
