Center events are aplenty

CHARLOTTE — The LGBT Community Center of Charlotte, 820 Hamilton St., Suite B11, has announced a host of activities to satisfy the palette for the “family” in the Queen City.

On Nov. 5, Neil MacAuley will hold photograph sessions for the holiday season ahead. These will be set by appointment only. Call the center to get on the calendar. Online ordering, greeting cards, enlargements and wall photos will be made available to participants. A donation of $25 will go to benefit the center.

Ready to get fit, energized and meet new people? Then join Zumba classes starting on Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. This high-energy Latin and international craze, utilizes exotic rhythms to get the body moving. Maria Jose Loftus will teach one-hour sessions at a cost of $5 each. A portion of the moneys will go to support the center.

If dance scene moves are not your scene, then let the center know if you’d like to get in on P90X workouts that start on Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. This exercise method is based upon working on muscle groups on a rotating basis. Start now and get chiseled for the spring.

On an ongoing basis, the center is always on the lookout for sustaining contributors. Send donations to P.O. Box 33535, Charlotte, NC 28233-3535 or visit to make a secure contribution.

Film screening slated

CHARLOTTE — Unity of Charlotte, 401 E. Arrowood Rd., will present “For the Bible Tells Me So” on Nov. 4 at 7 p.m., with discussion following.

This film was developed by Daniel Karslake. It shares a personal, inspirational portrait of the divide between Christian teachings and sexual identity. The presentation helps to reconcile these differences.

As a way of creating awareness about the upcoming anti-gay marriage amendment, it is the hope of the film showing organizers that this dialogue will be a rally call to stand up against the ballot issue.
