KGLRC Changes Name, Gets New Location


KALAMAZOO - After more than 28 years of operating as the Kalamazoo Gay Lesbian Resource Center, the organization will now be known as OutFront Kalamazoo.

"Now, more than ever, we believe it is imperative that we use our voices to stand out front here in Kalamazoo," board President Jessica Hermann-Wilmarth told on Feb. 24. "We want to make sure we include all voices in our efforts, which is why changing our name to OutFront Kalamazoo is a fitting shift."

OutFront Kalamazoo will continue to offer the same quality programming and services available to the community, according to a press release.

The board of directors also announced that they will be moving to a new location in downtown Kalamazoo. The organization will begin operating at their new 340 S. Rose St. location in March 2017.

According to OutFront, the change comes as an effort to meet the demands of the community while becoming "more visible and accessible."

Jay Maddock, executive director of OutFront Kalamazoo, told on Feb. 24 that, "This move is a significant moment for our organization and the Kalamazoo community. It will allow us to reach more people and families, while letting us live out our mission visibly and proudly."

OutFront Kalamazoo is busy behind the scenes building a new website. Check back at for updates on their progress.
