New LGBT center coming to Traverse Ctity

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- There will be more support in northern Michigan for those in the LGBT community.

Polestar LGBT+ has signed a leased to open the new center.

The center will offer support groups and it will be a place for people to make friends.

Board members at Polestar LGBT+ say that they plan to offer referral services for those who are seeking help.

"We're just gonna have open hours so that people can come hang out. They can socialize, they can meet their friends in a safe environment, and they can come in any manner that they choose, be whoever they want and just be accepted into a safe space", said Christina Walsh, a board member at Polestar LGBT+.

The center is expected to have a grand opening party in August.
