GM Foundation Gives Grant To NIDL


The General Motors Foundation spent time Thursday morning, October 15th, cutting some big checks to a number of local organizations, as part of its 2015 Plant City Grants.  The NIDL was one of 13 local non-profit organizations selected to receive a monetary donation that for all totaled $130,000. The grants ranged anywhere from $4,000 to $50,000 each. Money was raised throughout the year by donations made by GM employees.  The Northeast Indiana Diversity Library received  $6,000 for program support.  For the NIDL it means helping with support of the digitization of materials in the archives.  The NIDL's current preservation projects through digitization includes:

  • the TROIS newsletter of Fort Wayne;
  • over 500 photos of a Revue at Tulisa's Up The Street in 1971;
  • over 100 photos of early GLO activities which was the city's first LGBT organization;
  • and reel-to-reel tapes of womens programs from Sister Space.

Indiana Transgender Network

In Trans Network

The Indiana Transgender Network aggregates resources available to transgender and gender diverse people living in Indiana. Our goal is to make it easier for people making a gender transition or trying to understand the subject of gender identity to find counselors, medical resources, legal information, support groups, advocacy organizations and other help on their journey.

We also post local and national news items of interest to trans and gender diverse folks.

Marriage Equality is now the law of the land!

Scott and Greg

We would like to take this opportunity to mark this momentous day in LGBT history. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that Marriage Equality is now the law of the land.With this ruling, Lesbian and Gay couples across the country now have the right and privilege to marry the person they love without fear of legal recrimination.

We thank all of those people and organizations who fought hard to make this happen. Without your diligence and perseverance, we would not be celebrating this day.

Breaking the Silence at Headwaters Park

The NEI LGBTQA Coaliton held the Breaking of the Silence Vigil for the National Day of Silence at Headwaters Park.  Four speakers talked to the gathered crowd which then marched to the rainbow lit MLK Bridge, followed by lighting and launching lantern balloons.  It was a wonderful vigil.
