The Lehigh Valley and Berks County's gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community opinion and newspaper, has been the local source for news and the information for the GLBT community and its allies since 1998.
Packed with news articles, nine original columns by local columnists, and a variety of other features, the Valley Gay Press is read by thousands of GLBTA people every month. The VGP can be found at dozens of drop-off locations around the Greater Lehigh Valley and Berks County and is direct mailed to 500 or more GLBTA households monthly.
It is VGP's mission to help and support other local not-for-profit pro-GLBT rights organizations by posting their press releases and events information and circulating it to the GLBTA community, free of charge. VGP also encourages for-profit businesses to support local not-for-profits by posting their event information free of charge, if the event somehow benefits a not-for-profit supportive of GLBT rights. Some restrictions may apply.
For subscription information or to post event press releases, contact the Valley Gay Press as noted below~
