Welcome!

Welcome to the Upper Delaware GLBT Blog - a place where we can network, share thoughts and get to know each other. This is our first step in creating a GLBT community in Sussex (NJ), Pike (PA), Sullivan (NY), and Orange (NY) Counties. Believe it or not, there will soon be a GLBT Center in OUR area. That's right, the Upper Delaware GLBT Center (UDGLBT) - which will be located in beautiful Milford, PA - is currently in the process of being formed! We are officially incorporated and are in the process of getting our 501(c)3 nonprofit status. Once we are up and running, we will serve GLBT adults, teens, families and friends by providing:

  • educational materials and information;
  • workshops and trainings;
  • social events;
  • creative and recreational opportunities;
  • supportive services;
  • referrals to GLBT-friendly stores, restaurants, services, and facilities;
  • and of course, a place to connect with the local GLBT community.

Here's how you can get involved. Help us spread the word by joining in a game of E-Tag. It's easy. Just send this link - http://www.udglbtcenter.blogspot.com/ - to five people you know who would be interested in knowing about this blog and the UDGLBT Center. Ask those five people to send it to five more. In no time we will be as big as the crowds at a Melissa Etheridge concert!

All joking aside, it is a great way to spread the word quickly. Of course you can send to more than five people, but we don't want to burn you out before we even open our doors. The people you email can be from anywhere - it's a blog, so our first step is worldwide and anyone anywhere can get involved.

To make it even more fun, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "Follow this Blog" link under the "Followers" widget. You will then see a pop-up window with the option to either follow 'publicly' or 'anonymously.' Select how you'd like to follow the blog, then click the orange "Follow" button. It is that simple, you are now a follower of this blog! If you elected to follow publicly, your profile picture (if uploaded) will be displayed on the blog with a link to your Blogger profile. It's a great way to start connections.

If you are interested in getting involved in other ways, you can email us at udglbt@gmail.com and someone will get back to you.

Check back frequently for updates and information. We look forward to seeing you at our first event!
