FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT
I hope that you have had a wonderful winter and are excited to enter the spring season. I sure am! As the temperatures outside rise, our minds wander toward notions of outdoor activities that require far fewer layers of clothing and long awaited vacations. Let this fabulous issue focused on travel and leisure further inspire your planning. In addition to bringing forth this publication, the Options team has been as busy as ever, continuing our work as an innovative resource on which our local LGBTQ+ community can depend.
As promised, we’ve taken many steps over the past two months to make this wonderful resource more accessible online. You may have noticed that we are in the process of adding more content to our website and are restructuring it for ease of use. This is a work in process and we will continue to streamline how Options shares information over the course of the next few issues.We are now offering digital advertising options in addition to print advertisements. Please reach out to our wonderful new advertising manager, Emma Montague, with any questions or suggestions for advertisers: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you have noticed that we have steadily increased our support of other local LGBTQ organizations, especially by attending events and sharing their news and announcements across our social media. We’re also honored to serve on the important Complete Count Committee, established by Governor Raimondo to assure an accurate count in the 2020 Census. Options will work to ensure that our community is fully represented in the census so that national funding for LGBTQ+ services remains robust, and that the breadth of our beautiful community is properly represented.
