research pageFrom The Pittsburgh Post Gazette… 

The first weekly Community Clinic for lesbian, gay and transgender people will be held Thursday in downtown Pittsburgh. The clinic, with physician Stacy Lane, is the only one targeting LGBTQIA individuals with no age limits or income requirements. It will be held on the eighth floor at 810 Penn Ave. from 2 to 5:30 p.m. During the clinic hours, the Garden of Peace Project will supply testing for sexually transmitted diseases and Project Silk will provide HIV testing.

Charmaine Turner, founder and director of Step Up 2 Step Out, will host a hip-hop dance class at 4 p.m. The Garden of Peace Project and Project Silk, which are the hosts, invite other providers to host their own dance classes or other health-related group activities such as yoga, meditation and self-esteem workshops.
