Our today's guest is Anthony Crisci, the Executive Director of Triangle Community Center (TCC) in Norwalk, CT. We will discuss LGBTQ concerns, and how his organization (TCC) supports this community. We will devote time to young people, who are coming out to their parents as well as other LGBTQ concerns.

Anthony began in his position at TCC in September 2013 as the organization’s first ever full time staff in its 23 year history. TCC now has 3 ½ full time staff and has expanded its programs and services to offer case management, financial assistance and housing for its clients. Anthony came to TCC after working with Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice in New York City, a national social justice organization. Anthony began his career in non-profit management as an undergrad at Hofstra University. There he joined The Pride Network, a student-run organization. Anthony worked with The Pride Network for five years and helped the student group grow into a 501c3 organization that now offers programming in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. He remains an active board member of The Pride Network today.

Triangle Community Center (TCC) is Fairfield County’s LGBTQ Community Center. The mission of TCC is to help strengthen the sense of pride, identity and visibility of the LGBTQ community in Fairfield County, CT, as well as to work with the greater community to foster and promote a more welcoming place for all.  (www.ctgay.org)
