The GLBT Infoline and PDN's resource web site began in 2004 as ways to link the Greater Lehigh Valley and Berks County GLBT community with support, information and GLBT-Friendly resources.
Over the years of the GLBT Infoline's existence an obvious pattern of calls has established and underscored what kind of help and information the local GLBT population most often seeks.
Calls asking for referrals to: GLBT-Friendly lawyers, doctors and therapists top the list of referral requests.
Other people call (or scan the web site) seeking referrals to everything from a GLBT-Friendly realtor to a GLBT-Friendly dog groomer. Or to simply ask where the local GLBT bars and clubs are, because they are new to the area or the community. The Infoline can provide information to a growing list of over 200 local GLBT-Friendly service providers, organizations, groups and businesses.
GLBT people also frequently call the Infoline asking for GLBT support group information, and help finding healthy, positive ways to meet people or become involved in the local GLBT community.
Callers also contact the Infoline with problems or questions about GLBT civil rights, discrimination and bias. The Infoline and PA Diversity Network may be able to provide suggestions, information and resources that can help with the caller's problem.
