On April 2nd, AFWM joined the LGBT Coalition of Western MA, Baystate Health, UMass Amherst’s Stonewall Center, GLSEN and others at Commerce High School for Gay Straight Alliance Day. This 3rd annual day of inspiration and community featured information tables, guest speakers, workshops and even a laugh therapy session! AFWM raffled off books by Shawn Decker, Jamie Gentille and Marvelyn Brown, which tell first-hand stories of young people living with HIV/AIDS, to two excited winners including the Commerce High librarian! Thank you to all who attended and visited our table.
