Tell Governor Scott to Protect LGBT State Employees
Florida’s veterans fought for the values all Americans hold. We believe in freedom, opportunity, and hard work.
That’s why it’s surprising to learn that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) veterans aren’t guaranteed employment protections in Florida. Those who fought for our country can be fired from their jobs simply because of who they are or who they love. That’s wrong by any measure. If you can volunteer to fight for our country, you shouldn’t have to worry about losing your job because you’re gay or transgender.
Add your name to the petition calling on Governor Rick Scott to sign an executive order guaranteeing employment protections for all Florida state workers, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression.

PCCNCF Welcomes New Business Member: Sunday Assembly Gainesville
Sunday Assembly is a secular alternative to traditional church. It was started in London in 2013 and has spread to countries in Europe as well as to the United States, Australia and South Africa. Its motto is “Live Better, Help Often, Wonder More”.
Sunday Assemblies always feature live music, an interesting speaker, a personal reflection and poetry. Gainesville’s first Sunday Assembly was held in January, 2016. Sunday Assembly Gainesville (SAGA) was accredited in February, 2017. It gathers the third Sunday of the month at 11:00 a.m. at Santa Fe College’s CIED Building, 520 W. University Avenue, and is followed by a pot-luck lunch. Sunday Assembly also has a monthly reading and discussion meeting, a game night, and a brunch.
We “help often” by providing hard-boiled eggs each week to Grace Marketplace, and occasionally preparing dinner there. We also collect donations for the Home Van and St. Francis House.
Past speakers have included Mayor Lauren Poe, Pegeen Hanrahan, Barbara Oberlander, Dr. Steven Benner, Peggy MacDonald, “Hutch” Hutchinson and Paul Ortiz.
Our website is SAGainesville.weebly.com and we are SundayAssemblyGainesville on Facebook, Meet-up,Twitter and Instagram.
Hosted by Pride Community Center on the last Friday of each month at 7:30pm, this is a free service to the LGBT community. A $2 donation is requested to cover snack and refreshment costs.
Arriving from all over Eastern Europe, the men who loiter around the Gare du Nord train station in Paris are scraping by however they can, forming gangs for support and protection, ever fearful of being caught by the police and deported. When the middle-aged, bourgeois Daniel approaches a boyishly handsome Ukrainian who calls himself Marek for a date, he learns the young man is willing to do anything for some cash. What Daniel intends only as sex-for-hire leads to a home invasion – and then an unexpectedly profound relationship. The drastically different circumstances of the two men’s lives reveal hidden facets of the city they share.
