THE LOFT - Thanksgiving Setting DinnerWHITE PLAINS, NY — The LOFT, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Community Center in White Plains, hosted a Thanksgiving Dinner that was open to the community, and served dinners to a diverse turnout of roughly two hundred attendees.

Yesterday’s Saturday, November 23, 2013, saw many walk-ins, but was also attended by clients of a number of the regions agencies, such as Cerebral Palsy of Westchester, Westchester Jewish Community Services, and Children's Village, affording their clients a chance to get out and have a good time, and good food.

"It's our way of giving back to a supportive community," said The LOFT's President Rich Houston. "We have marriage equality here in New York, and now Federally with the Supreme Court decision on the Defense of Marriage Act, and we have vastly moved ahead in acceptance, none of which would have happened without the support of the entire community. So, again, this is our way of giving thanks to everyone."

The LOFT worked with many area restaurants that donated food for the dinner, as well as by donations from individuals to support the event. The LOFT's board of directors is considering hosting this event annually.

  1. “Lol. I have to laugh at you homophobes because most homophobes are closet gays. So sad in 2013 people like you still exist.”
    Oh I see…..Because I do not support your “group” or embrace your choice of a “lifestyle” I am actually a closet homosexual!
    Thank you for clearing that up for me! I’m free at last!
    I can’t wait for the next Halloween parade in the Village! I’ll be the very tall bald guy wearing the princess costume with a gag ball in my mouth. Come find me. We can play “pick a hole” together!
    You freak!

  2. “We have vastly moved ahead in acceptance.”
    Says Who? You? Crawl back under the rock from which you and “abomination ilk” came from.
    None of this would have happened without judicial fiat, rather than the will of the majority. Nice try Asshole!
    “None of which would have happened without the support of the entire community.”
    You and your group will never have my support.
    Amoral Sodomites!

  3. My confiscated tax dollars being used for a program (without my approval) while subversively attempting to “normalize” LBGT groups (that I do not support.)
    Other than that, what could possibly go wrong?
