The Greater Dayton LGBT Center strives to offer a comprehensive, community-based service organization to the gender and sexual minorities of the Dayton and Miami Valley area by providing event spaces, activities, and resources that encourage advocacy, education, and entertainment.
We are heartbroken to share news of the loss of dear friend and relentless LGBTQ+ advocate Jerry Mallicoat. He was influential in organizations across our community. His most recent work was as the LGBTQ Health Initiatives Program Manager at Public Health of Dayton & Montgomery County. Jerry was also the founder and Board Chair of Elder Rainbow Care of Greater Dayton. Over the past two years, he was instrumental organizing the Greater Dayton LGBTQ+ Her/History Project which archives and celebrates our local LGBTQ+ community history. Jerry has a long history of volunteerism and was always willing to give his time and talents to move our community forward. He is a Dayton LGBTQ+ powerhouse and will be greatly missed.
