Best Local Activist/Advocacy Group

Wingspan

Readers Pick

Has the bigotry in Arizona got you down? Take heart in the fact that Tucson Weekly readers have named local nonprofit Wingspan as the best activist/advocacy group for seven years in a row—concrete proof that Tucson isn't a narrow-minded, intolerant city (despite anti-gay-marriage laws and other things coming out of the state Legislature). In action for the LGBT community since 1984—and despite economic woes—Wingspan's community outreach and public-service programs are still uniting gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and straight people in the good fight against discrimination and its deleterious effects. Enlightened public: 7. Homophobic assholes: 0.
