A Special One Big Event Announcement
We are continuing to monitor the evolving situation with COVID-19 and the Delta variant in terms of impact to One Big Event scheduled for November 13, 2021. We were so very hopeful and excited about being back together in person for One Big Event this year.
Circumstances are such that it looks more and more that we will not be able to do an in person event. Disappointment does not begin to capture how we feel about this probable reality.
We will let you all know soon about how we will proceed for this year.
Thank you all for your interest and support of the Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective through your support of One Big Event.
Linda Estabrook, Executive Director
E. John McGarvey, Event Chair
